Introduction Welcome to By Way of Salem. A place for Wicked Whimsies and Charming Prims! I've always loved the holiday season beginning with Halloween. I opened By Way of Salem in 2009 as a place to sell my crafts celebrating all the holidays-everything from Fall pumpkins to Easter bunnies. I've been an artist my whole life, well since I got my first box of Crayola Crayons 64 box. I enjoy sculpting, stitching, quilting, collage, jewelry, and of course painting. I LOVE to paint! My artistic style ranges from primitive to rustic, French country, cottage, or anything that makes my heart sing. I participate in local and out-of-town craft and art shows also, so please inquire. And now I've added another Etsy store just for my jewelry called Salem's Charms. I specialize in hand stamped metal jewelry with fun words and quotes. Come visit me! A portion of your purchase goes to help animals in need. I donate to various charities throughout the year, a cause dear to my heart. Please feel free to post comments and make sure to visit me at both my Etsy stores where I'm always adding new things (or trying to!). See you soon!
