Margot Potter a.k.a. The Impatient Crafter™ is a designer, author, mixed media artist, trash to treasure trover, freelance writer, consultant, public speaker, actor and vocalist and TV personality who creates innovative designs for manufacturers, books and magazines and teaches popular seminars and classes at craft and major jewelry industry events. Margot has published seven humorous how to design jewelry books. She is an ambassador for the Create Your Style with SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS program, a member of the Beadalon Design Team and a blog team member for iLoveToCreate. Approaching everything with her signature sense of humor, boundless curiosity and copious amounts of joie de vivre, she feels that if it’s not fun, it’s simply not worth doing. She invites people to not only think outside of the box, but to tear it up, repurpose it into something fabulous and stand on it to reach for the stars. Equally comfortable at the writer’s desk, in the design studio, onstage or in front of the camera, she's been a professional performer for 24 years and a crafty chick since before she was old enough to hold a Crayola®.
Margot’s no nonsense approach to creative expression demystifies the creative process for the Average Joe and Jane, inviting everyone to the creative table and convincing all of them that they too can “Create Without Filters™.”
