Handmade Harbor--A Caring Place To Promote Yourself and Other Artisans

There's a wonderful place on Facebook where handmade artisans can gather to promote themselves and other artists.  Or if you want to simply take a peek at everyone's newest designs, treasuries, etc and share them on Facebook, Twitter, Stumble Upon, and other great online places...that's fun too!

It's a group called Handmade Harbor and is the creation of a wonderful jewelry artisan that we call NaLa!  You can see some of her beautiful and unique jewelry designs here!

Here are the basic rules for the page:

Welcome Handmade Community!
This is your place to showcase yourselves and your fellow artists. Please follow the posting guidelines:
1. Be a caring contributor to the group, commenting on other posts and sharing whenever you post something of your own.
2. Share new handmade artists with the group on Sharing and Caring Thursday, or any other time.
3. Have fun Caring and Sharing and making new friends!

There are posts on the Discussion Tab where you can share your links with other handmade indie artists and every Thursday is "Caring and Sharing" Day on Handmade Harbor where each member shares two of their favorite handmade artists.  The process is simple:  "Simply share your favorite handmade artists with the group by posting their links on the wall. Then be sure to let your artists know they've been featured on Handmade Harbor so they can enjoy their moment in the spotlight!"

And if you are on Flickr, you can join the Handmade Harbor Flickr group and share your photos with the group!!

Handmade Harbor is a kind and sharing group of artisans and the group is run by one of the most generous handmade artists I've run across.  Her belief in the handmade movement is unflappable and her caring and sharing of other artist's work started way before she began Handmade Harbor.  Because of this, and the warmth of spirit of all the members,  Handmade Harbor truly is a safe harbor for and handmade artists!!

Come on over and join us! The door is always open!!

    I am an MBA Jewelry Artisan and owner of Zur Designs.  I create handcrafted jewelry using only the highest quality materials such as sterling silver,semi-precious gemstones, swarovski crystals, and pearls.

    My designs are inspired by life, love, and the beauty that surrounds me from the Berkshire Mountains of Massachusetts to the wonderful beaches in Rhode Island...both I consider my home.
