    Crystal, go to her profile here at LB and click on “visit my website”. It will link you to one of her other etsy shops. Then click on “info and policies” in that shop. There are links to her two other etsy stores, including mayababyjewelry. Good luck! :-)

    Crystal Canary says:

    Mary S–Thank You!! I followed your instructions and found the link. I appreciate your help! :)

  15. Rocknitjewelry
    Rocknitjewelry says:

    Wow, thank you Mary S! You know the exact procedure. Thanks for your interest Crystal Canary! I actually have three Etsy jewelry shops. One is for more high end jewelry (Mayababy Jewelry), one is for more mid range jewelry (Rocknit Jewelry) and one is for lower priced jewelry using brass and copper in a more tribal primitive style. I am schizophrenic and I love too many different styles of jewelry! I’m thinking of opening a fourth store to sell vintage jewelry that I own and destash some beads and components that I don’t want anymore. I love jewelry and when I didn’t make it I bought loads of it! I still buy jewelry from other artists if it’s something that I don’t make ………yet. I tried my hand at metal clay and loved it too but I have to buy a kiln so right now I’m pursuing the knotting.
