Meet the Designer-Artist
Where do you live? I live in Corpus Christi, Texas.
What inspires you as a designer-artist? I draw inspiration from nature when designing my handmade art-to-wear and mixed media artwork. I use recycled metal, wood, and other items as tools that I make myself.
What medium do you work with mostly? I primarily work with copper wire and semiprecious gemstone beads.
What inspired this design? I live on the Texas Gulf Coast. The materials and my surroundings came together to tell a story through art jewelry of a journey at sea.
How did it come together? I planned this piece. The colors and concept had been floating around in my mind for a while. The method of construction was the fun part!
Where and How do you sell your jewelry? I sell my work online on Etsy at: https://www.etsy.com/shop/laurelynn and through my website http://www.laurelynn.com. I am a regular artisan vendor at festivals in South Texas. My work is also available in several gift shops in the Corpus Christi area.
