My name is Aly Marie, and I am the owner and founder of Knack for Knots (est. 2012). I love creating jewelry and other crafts. I have been making jewelry since I was four years old (with a lot of help from my mother back then!), and have found joy in this hobby ever since. I hope to connect with others and share my knowledge the best I can.
At present, I am in the midst of my Ph.D. program at a Canadian university. I hope to continue sharing my love of creating things with others throughout this journey and beyond. In addition to jewelry and craft tutorials, I hope to share business tips and other general life stories/advice from my (near decade of) experience of selling jewelry and creating content.
If you have any questions or requests, please feel free to email me at email@example.com. I also respond to handwritten letters when I can. If you like snail mail too, you can find my PO Box details here.
