We have so many new followers from FB, Etsy and google plus that we wanted to share a bit about ourselves and our story for those that may not have seen it in the past.............thanks for joining us,, we hope you'll visit often!
How did Jonquil Junction begin?
It began as an idea to connect crafters and customers .
My husband and I have both tried various crafting projects and venues over our 30+ years of living
here ,  but  the remoteness of our location prevented us from having our items seen by many potential customers' . Even though we love the simpler life we live here in the remote Ozark mountains, we needed a way to show our handcrafted items to a wider range of people so  we are thankful  (sometimes) that the invasion of the  internet has allowed us to share our products  with folks far and wide .
Tell us a little bit about your products:
Our products are as varied as the weather in these hills:
My husband makes the Hand-hammered copper jewelry
After years of experience with  precise woodworking  and working with the springs, gears, and  metals in his clock-making business, When  a customer asked him to make a copper chain for a pocket watch, he used his knowledge of "work hardening" metal  to design and craft a chain for the watch.  That experience  soon led to a  line of copper jewelry, with a focus on earrings. He designs each piece in his head first then makes an individual ‘jig’ to bend and hammer the piece into the shape he desires. This time consuming process results in a unique and beautiful piece that you will never see in a mass-produced jewelry store.
All parts of his earrings, except the ear-wire, are handmade and hammered, from the hammered body of  the earring right down to each individual , intricate and  tiny piece
Our daughter helps us with the internet side of the business as well as making all the hand-sewn items we offer- from the  Handmade biscuit and rag baby quilts, denim rag purses, aprons, notebook covers, embroidered tea towels and more,she’s always trying something new.
I write for the blog , and capture photos featuring our menagerie of four footed and feathered friends as well as our beautiful country landscape, there will soon be a combination of these writing and photos available in book format as well as downloadable prints and other items as well.
 Do you have a favorite or best selling item?
Our favorite is our photography because is captures the essence of
our locality and our lifestyle (for better or for worse)
Very soon you’ll be seeing much more of this genre on our pages.
Our best selling items lately have been the handmade denim purses my
daughter sews
What do you like most and least about having a small business?
Most: The interaction and personal touch with people near and far.
Least: Time spent promoting--we’d rather be producing!
How can people purchase from JJ?
