Jewelry and Paper Art
“Every day gives me the opportunity to design and create jewelry and paper art for others to enjoy.” ~ Mary Kohlschmidt
I have always been interested in various forms of art, and have taken professional lessons in oil painting and pottery.
My current interest is in beading. I design bracelets, necklaces and earrings and I have expanded to other fine art beads and beading.
Most of my “Peyote” jewelry is made with Miyuki (Japanese) beads which are some of the finest beads in the world. More uniform in size and shape than their Czech counterparts, Japanese beads come in a wide range of colors and finishes.
I work with Austrian Swarovski crystals and various beads, wire, sterling silver and many materials, making my transition from a praofessional employed career to a fantastic retirmement career. I spend as much time creating as possible, both jewelry and paper creations, incuding greeting cards and boxes, eight-sided oriental boxes and many other designs.
