Jewelry Making

Added a new channel to Crafts called Jewelry Making. This includes some beading (but we have a new channel for that also) but mostly wire work and more 'formal' kinds of jewelry.

Jewelry making, although one of the oldest art forms, even today relies on the individual artisan practicing their craft. Not only that, but the artisan is personally known and acknowledged for their work. For example, we (well, my wife) knows who made our wedding rings. I guess this is what distinguishes art and crafts from engineering, say - because architects by-and-large get credit for their work, but programmers by-and-large do not (even though programming is very much a craft, despite rumors to the contrary).
