A little about myself and how Silver Cloud Designs came to be.
The photo above is my studio and my happy place. It's where I can be creative surrounded by art work I've acquired from artists at outdoor shows. I'm a one woman show, forging the each piece, photographing them, and publishing them on this website. i'm inspired by nature, holidays, trends, and of course designs that just come to mind.
My education for creating jewelry began after retirement from the Boulder Valley School District, taking classes from beginning metalsmithing to advanced techniques and still take classes to continue my knowledge of new techniques, as well as, refreshing the old ones.
I like to design with nature in mind, trees, flowers, mountains and whatever visa interests me.
For example, the pendant below was designed around the dendritic opal stone. It reminded me of a mountainous area so designed with that in mind adding a sterling mountain with a glacier flowing from it.
I do outdoor shows and festivals, as well as, indoor shows during winter months. The show schedule is available from the home page.
I love making jewelry that I can share with you. If you like my work, please "like" Silver Cloud Designs on Facebook. Feel free to comment also, it can help me to improve!
