Finally selling my jewelry
I think I started making hemp jewelry when I was 12. I remember doing a lot of it in Germany one summer, and purchasing about 80 Deutsche marks worth of beads and string. Well, I have kept the materials over the years and started picking it up again. There was a craft fair in Durango last weekend, and while I missed the boat on that, I was able to get a small table at the local grocery co-op, Durango Natural Foods for two hours on Sunday. I sold three things, and I have much more. I will probably continue making things until I run out of supplies before reassessing whether this is a worthwhile hobby. In the meantime, I decided I would try to sell my creations online instead of lugging everything around wherever I travel. Now is the perfect season to start selling these sorts of things, so after researching my options, I decided to use Etsy as my online jewelry selling platform.
I would also like to use this as an opportunity to raise money for a charity, since I haven’t actually done any fundraising since last summer. So, if anyone does want to buy this jewelry, I will keep track of all my sales and donate 20% of whatever I make to the National MS Society. If you would like to make a larger donation to the MS Society or are not even interested in the jewelry but still want to donate, please e-mail me and we can figure out a method via paypal or some other option. At the end of this year, I will submit my donation (and will continue to do the same thing for next year).
So, without further to write, I introduce my Etsy shop, Nomadic Jewelry by Nomadic Cycling.

May I just say what a relief to uncover somebody that truly knows what they’re discussing on the net.
You actually realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
More people should look at this and understand this side of your story.
I was surprised you’re not more popular because you surely possess the gift.
