Ronee Del Bianco

A statement from the artist: "Since 2000, I have been dedicated to designing and making fine gemstone bead jewelry. I collect stones and pearls that have intrinsic value and then allow my designs to flow from the source. Searching out that one extraordinary strand so that I can create adornment that is truly unique is a particular joy. My pieces are classically inspired but informed with a fresh perspective. I love my work, I hope you do too."Ronee

Adrienne DeLoe

adriennedeloeA statement from the artist: "My interest in handcrafting original and creative products is founded on my love of the fine arts and the desire to create items that exude beauty. I use materials that reflect the elements of beauty around us; primarily flowers and flower petals, often offset by fine papers or original digital and hand drawn images. I collect my botanicals from a wide range of places including my home garden and trips abroad. The effect of the jewelry is both elegant and full of flare. The pieces take on an antique quality or a natural vibrancy according to the materials used. Every piece is unique, tasteful and artistically handled, showcasing the beauty that I seek to create."

Carolyn Musick

Carolyn Musick finds inspiration for her jewelry from the story of the tree of life.

The Story of the Tree of Life: For all the people of the earth, the Creator has planted a Sacred Tree under which they may gather, and there find healing, power, wisdom, and security. The roots of this tree spread deep into the body of Mother Earth. Its branches reach upward like hands praying to Father Sky. The fruits of this tree are the good things the Creator has given to the people: Teachings that show the path to love, compassion, generosity, patience, wisdom, justice, courage, respect, humility... and many other wonderful gifts.Carolyn Musick Jewelry

Megan Bassett

meganbassetA statement from the artist: I really like to make things... When I was little, besides sledding, skating, and skiing, I would spend the cold Wisconsin Winters painting ceramic statues. I was a perfectionist at it. Every paint line had to be straight. From then on I dabbled in everything creative. I made friendships pins (remember those!)... I painted... I tried to sew... I used colored pencils... I cooked... I made stationary... In College, at the University of Minnesota, I wanted to pursue a career that I loved. I tried photography, film studies, and journalism. I thought about interior design. In 1996 I became a ski bum. I packed my bags, bought a YACIMA Bike and Ski rack and move to Colorado. I fell in love with Ski life. That was it, my new degree, Recreation and Leisure Studies. A year later I graduated with a degree and started "grown up life". But I still had a desire to create.

Fast Forward 10 years...

In Italy while working the Olympic Winter Games, I fell in love with Murano glass. After the Games, my husband and I toured the Italian countryside. I purchased glass and jewelry from every city we visited. Absolutely a trip to remember. While back at home I learned that my friend's sister makes glass. She took me to Bella Studio where I signed up for several classes. I loved the class... Loved the medium... Loved the glass... I love the freedom to create... Today, I live in Colorado Springs with my husband Alan and our son Cortland. I stay busy raising a family, and designing my glass jewelry at my studio in Colorado Springs. Megan Bassett Art
