Meet the Designer-Artist
Where do you live? I live in a wonderful woodland setting called Myrtle Creek, Oregon.
What inspires you as a designer-artist? My style is a little off the road most traveled. I make angel pins. Not with a traditional look but the way I see angels. I am inspired by a color, a texture, or a shape. Usually I pick one piece of my angel and build focusing on how that piece can make my total effort come alive.
What medium do you work with mostly? I really like wire and the look you can achieve with it. Couple the wire with just the right gem or stone and miracles happen. I am a lover of used or found items. I couple them with your pieces to make a one-of-a-kind treasure.
Why did you become enchanted with this style of jewelry-making? I think it was a God thing.
Where and how do you sell your jewelry? I have a web site: theangellady.biz. On Etsy I am: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheAngelLadyAngels I sell through local businesses and large craft fairs in the area. I also sell a book on making angel pins: "Hand to Heart an Easy Guide to Making Angel Pins".
What is the name of the piece you submitted with your success story? Cold Starry Night
What inspired this design? I was inspired by the stone itself, with its icy blue color.
How did it come together? Each and every design is different for most artists. I design around the piece I wish to be the focus and the rest as they say - is history.
