Advertising Disclosure Statement is my personal site. It is an informational website about how to make and sell jewelry and is free to all visitors.

However, to help support my writing of this website I have setup a few streams of income from advertising and affiliate marketing. Such compensation does not influence the information within

Recommendations of Products and Services

I always give my honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences. I do not accept advertising or make recommendations unless I sincerely believe in the principles or have experienced the benefits of a product or service and feel that you, my visitors, can benefit from knowing about it.

Google Ads

"Ads by Google" are not selected by me, so if you see a Google ad and a Web page about the same product or service, it is a coincidence.

Non-Google Sponsorships

I will only accept non-Google sponsorships from providers of high-quality goods or services. I appreciate their recognition and support of

Full Disclosure

Rest assured that the actual content on sponsored pages are independent of any sponsorship or affiliate relationship. To avoid the appearance of any conflict of interest and in the spirit of full disclosure, I identify all sponsored content to you.

How Affiliate Marketing and
Advertising Sponsor Relationships Work

When you click on the link for a recommendation (not all recommendations are affiliate links, in fact, most are not) that I make of an affiliate product or service and should you go on to make a purchase, I'll receive a small commission.

This only happens when you use the link from I receive no commission should you choose to purchase the product or service directly from the provider.

The information and projects on take time and effort to research and develop. By supporting my sponsors and recommendations you allow me to continue to deliver original content, free, to you, my visitors.

I value your support my sponsors and recommendations should you ever have the need for them.

Supporting my sponsors is a WIN-WIN-WIN for you, me, and them and I thank you very much.
