my hobby is making costume jewelry made from semi-precious beads and stones like those popularly sold in tiangges in the malls. i find it interesting and relaxing at the same time. some friends who have seen my work say they're beautiful, and have asked me to do several pieces for them. since its only a hobby, i work only whenever im free, but now that i've experienced being paid a lot just for some pieces i have plans of doing it full time!!! its so amazing it was just a hobby but now it turned out to be a career for me.. i hope i can inspire all those who can read this, in just 3 months i have saved a lot of money & bought a second hand car... its true!!! just be patient & put your heart into it,, have fun and enjoy!

Thank you for the advice. I will have to look into this. Where do you sell your crafts? Do you have your own web site? I am looking for a way to make extra money. When I got married over two years ago I made my own center pieces, my own bouquets and my own boutineers. I have been thinking about selling those online as well. I am not good at creating my own web site so in order for me to do this I would have to pay someone to create it for me. I know this will cost me money. I am looking for other sites where I can make a few dollars.

..it's interesting to see that you can earn with this hobby, I love make jewelry too and if I can earn something like you will be perfect, but it's difficult to find where sell our creations..

I am really fond of making bracelets and I post them at cfmedrano.multiply.com. My hubby's officemates buy them and they liked it. I get addicted to collecting assorted types of beads. Just wanna ask if there are nice plastic beads in Divisoria. I am based here in cagayan de oro city and I am looking for plastic beads that can be sorted in bracelets for kids and teens. The ones with character shapes like small shoes, dolls, small cups and saucers, etc. The ones with pastel and neon colors too. I hope you can help me. I can order then from you if there is. Thanks
