Margot Potter


Three notches too loud, five notches too sparkly, aging disgracefully. Writer, Actress, Vocalist, Design Expert, and On-Camera Talent Margot Potter has published seven books on jewelry making and design and an e-book on personal branding. She’s worked with and designed for most of the biggest companies in DIY including Joann Fabrics, Michaels, AC Moore Stores, Plaid Crafts, iLoveToCreate, Beadalon, and Swarovski. With hundreds of hours onstage and in live unscripted TV, she co-hosted weekly DIY on the FLY craft segments on WBIR Channel 10 Knoxville’s Live at Five at Four, appeared on QVC as a guest product expert for over 11 years, was a contestant on TLC's Craft Wars, and she recently appeared as a DIY Star Finalist on Home and Family TV

Her first full length book Fifty and Other F-words: Reflections From the Rearview Mirror with Sterling Publishing debuts May 1, 2018. Never afraid to tell it like it is, Margot is a refreshingly real personality sparkling in a sea of so-so sameness. 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 twenty four years and a fashionista for over 50.
