Clear Creek Beadsmithy

Custom Needleworked Metal & Mixed Media

My Story......................

   I have long been fascinated with rocks and creating things.  Growing up in the midst of artists; I considered my childhood skills in needlework and mixed media as that of an artisan or craftsperson secure with pattern in tow. Metalsmithing has opened up a whole new world for me and led to the realization that the secret of creative power is its spiritual activity. Please take a moment to contemplate my vision of the wonder & splendor of life .

 

 

 

My one of a kind pieces are lovingly crafted using silver, brass, gold, copper & a myriad of unparalled crystals & gemstones. Gorgeous wire is crocheted or knit into as many different styles as my mind can bring into being. I invoke the style & heart of the Native American  genre to combine my love of feathers, the strength of metal, the mythical power of crystals & the feel of fiber.
