Cindy of Cindy's Creative Crochet is a self taught crocheter who has been working with wire for approximately five years. and cannot follow a written pattern without a LOT of frustration. Cindy started making crocheted wire jewelry because she had trouble finding ready make bracelets that fit her and thought it was a great idea to make her own after seeing a crocheted piece elsewhere. (Cindy has huge hands, bigger than some men's hands.)
Cindy loves to work with copper wire. She loves the warm and natural color. Cindy also likes using polymer clay beads, especially ones made by her friend tooaquarius, and amethyst stone.
Apart from crafting, Cindy is a mother to 5 kids, ages 12,9,8,7 and 6. She enjoys baking, and does so for people in her neighborhood. Cindy's specialty is cheesecake (YUM!!!). She has over 100 different cheesecake recipes and makes more up as she goes. Cindy also likes to make ice cream. Her favorite is what she calls Mexican Mocha Fantasy. It's chocolate, cinnamon and coffee flavored (another YUM!!!!).
To see more of Cindy's work, visit her on flickr and check out her Etsy shop.
