Introducing Beadworks by Kerri

Hi everyone!
My name is Kerri aka Beadworks by Kerri and I'll be joining the Gallery 141 artist collective April 1st. I'm really excited to be included. My life long love affair with arts and crafts began when, as a young girl, my grandmother taught me how to crochet. Ever since, I'm happiest when my hands are creating something. Through my journey as an artist I have tried and enjoyed many crafts, including crochet, knitting (never quite got the hang of it), sewing, macrame, needlepoint, cross stitch, you name it. Sometimes I would have 4 or 5 projects going at the same time across several mediums. It wasn't until my older sister Cindy taught me how to make my first pair of earrings that I became focused on one craft. Almost immediately I became addicted to beads and for those of you who are also confessed beadaholics, you know what I mean. There's a certain feeling or spirituality that comes from running your fingers around and across a nicely shaped stone. The colors are fascinating and the variety is endless. As with many forms of art, you are only limited by your own imagination. So, please come down to the gallery to see my collection of jewelry or just to chat. I'll be there Tuesday through Thursday most weeks and, of course, First Fridays. Be sure to check out my blog!
Hope to see you soon!! Kerri

Kerri's work is awesome. I have made purchases from her for at least 20 years. I've been a very content customer.
