So, you want to sell the stuff you make, right?

Me too! And I’ve been doing just that for over a decade.

I’m Jess Van Den – and I’ve been running my own successful handmade jewellery business, Epheriell,  since 2008. In 2010 I went full-time as a self-employed maker, and brought my husband into the business soon after.

Since 2013, I’ve also been teaching makers just like you how to turn your handmade hobby into a successful part or full-time business via my blog, podcast, and membership community.

If you’re ready to create AND thrive – you’ve found the right place to help you turn your dream into a reality!

It’s a long road, and a lot of hard work… but it IS possible… I can show you how.
