Red Bess Bonney
Susan of RedBessBonney has been crafting all her life. She started early in life with crossstich, but jewelry really caught her attention a few years ago. Her inspiration comes from years of being involved with renaissance festivals ("I'm mostly just attending these days," she says). She also draws on her heritage (Scottish), and that of her husband (Irish), so you will find many items with Celtic influence in her shop. Making jewelry led to her to beading in general, but she's recently diversified recently with picture frame cards.
Susan found out about Etsy in 2007, and thought it would be a great way to pay for her son's pre-school tuition and still be able to stay at home with him.
