Hello! My name is Matthew Nix. I live in Collinsville, IL, a suburb of St. Louis, MO. Some people consider my work an art, others call it a craft. Still others think it's just something I do late at night when I can't sleep. Either way, I make pendants that are unique and unusual.

I began making jewelry by accident. I wish I could say it was all planned—but who really plans this kind of thing in life? Some things just evolve and grow, and end up taking on their own life. My grandmother used to make brooches and hatpins with fried marbles. I thought they would make great pendants, and started making them and selling them in my spare time. These became very popular and I quickly began to sell them to stores worldwide.

Later on, I became interested in wire wrapping. Wire wrapping is my main passion when it comes to pendant making. After a while I began to experiment with other types of media including polymer clay and fused glass. I also do photo transfers on several mediums. I dabble in mixed media applications as well. I like to combine different techniques and different mediums to create truly unique designs.

After years of hard work, I was able to commit Create-a-Pendant full-time. I'm proud of the fact I started with nothing and built a successful business doing something I enjoy.

Besides designing jewelry, I enjoy teaching my craft. I am now offering kits, tutorials, and DVDs that pass the joy of my craft on to others. I occasionally offer local classes and have found it to be a very rewarding experience in several aspects. I also participate in a few different craft shows throughout the year.

Please feel free to look around my site and view my work and products. My website is a testimony of my desire to create and teach others.
