Artists

Carole strives to create work that is elegant and contemporary in style yet traditionally hand crafted. Old world crafts such as Japanese kumihimo braiding, Chinese knotting, and hand stitched bead weaving are among the basic patterns, forms and components of her work. Tiny Japanese glass beads are the basic materials, but semi-precious stones and found objects are added to many pieces because of the texture and weight they add. Old world silk, cotton and metal fibers, laid side by side with these non-traditional materials, add both depth and history. Since the goal of her work is to create a much loved treasure, perfection is key.
