Get to Know

My name is Melissa J and I crochet. I want to welcome you to my studio (Crochet By Melissa J) and thank you for visiting! My studio proudly features exclusive crocheted items and more. All items have been hand-crafted by me, in Phoenix, AZ (USA), in a smoke-free and pet-free environment, with quality workmanship and attention to detail.

I originally learned to crochet back in 2000. I was taught by a very dear family friend. I learned how to crochet in order to make a chemo cap for my grandma. At the time, however, I was too busy to continue with my crocheting.

After I long hiatus, I resumed my crocheting in January 2008. I really enjoy my crocheting and enjoy designing and modifying patterns to create unique items. I especially like working with crochet thread and beads to make jewelry, accessories, and ornaments. All of the jewelry items I create feature nickel-free materials (which is great for those with a nickel allergy, like myself).

In addition to my crocheting, I enjoy many other crafts, including paper crafting, jewelry making, and counted cross stitching.

After much encouragement, from family and friends, to sell my crochet items, I decided, in November 2010, to start my crochet business, Crochet By Melissa J. Over time, I have expanded my selection of items.

I hope you like my hand-crafted, exclusive items. Hand-crafted items make great gifts. Order your items today!

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. Thank you for your time and interest, and orders! All orders are greatly appreciated!
