Studio On The Hill is this week's featured ArtFire Studio for the ArtFire Jewelry Artists and Supply Shops Guild. Studio On The Hill features both jewelry and supplies. I have featured two of my favorites in this posting. Here is the artisan's bio from her studio:
Hi, I'm Karen from Artisan Jewelry. I am both a jewelry artisan and instructor. I have taught both private and group classes for many years now. Currently, I am teaching classes at Paint Creek Center for the Arts in Michigan. My latest passion is working with metal and wire which is reflected in many of my designs. I can usually be found in my studio with a torch in one hand and a piece of glowing metal on the soldering brick. I love to work with copper and silver. My favorite beads are Swarovski crystals and lampwork glass.
Since I really like all things that remind me of the beach, I especially like these starfish earrings. They remind me of many happy afternoons walking the beaches in Sanibel and looking for shells. I have found several starfish but they have all been alive so they remained right where I found them. Which is a good thing I guess.
Check out Karen's jewelry. She has some really nice designs. And if you need supplies you can find them there too.
