In 1995 a friend introduced Ellie to the new Polymer Clays and her creativity and business really took off. The increase in artistic quality immediately resulted in acceptance into much larger and more prestigious craft shows and also a significant increase in the popularity of her ornaments. Ellie now attends more than eighteen high-end craft shows, which follow the strict standards for handmade crafts.
Each ornament is individually handmade. Ellie is involved in the process from beginning to end, which is evident by the outstanding quality of the product. No pre-cast molds are ever used to make the ornaments. A single ornament can contain as many as 95 individual pieces. Each one represents a complete commitment and dedication to product integrity and excellence.
And now after twenty years of business Ellie is ready to join so many other successful people by launching her own Web site; www.JalinofVermont.com. This exciting venture is the result of the generous support and encouragement of the Springfield, VT Regional Development Corporation and a very technically skilled website designer from Woodstock, Vermont. We hope that you are ready to enjoy the wonderful and whimsical creativity of a very talented artist and crafter as you visit the site.
Ellie resides in Vermont with her wonderful husband of over 36 years. The family attends First Congregational Church of Woodstock, Vermont. www.fccw.net
