Lifetime of Handmade

Teresa of Trusk4U has spent a lifetime loving DIY!  She comes from a crafty family that encouraged her love of creating.  She worked for a time at JoAnns and quickly discovered the bead isle!  After spending countless breaks browsing and dreaming, Teresa bought a book and a few supplies and has not looked back since.

Now, from those simple book designs, Teresa has blossomed into a full blown jewelry artist that has to be seen to be believed.  Moving on to more complicated bead work and eventually to wire work, Teresa has found her passion and the world gets to benefit with wonderful creations.

Teresa is a longtime supporter of the HandmadeArtistsForum and joined us on our relaunch of the HandmadeArtistsShop.  Her shop is full of wonders in colors and textures, and as she adds more it will just get better!

It is one thing to sit in your studio and create works of wearable art for sale, but Teresa takes the love of handmade one step further.  She opened a shop in her hometown of Mebane, NC that specializes in handmade works from local artists.  Teresa loves to talk to her customers about each of her artists and how their work is special.
