Hand Beaded Healing Stones

I have always been creative, over my lifetime it has showed up as dress-making, amateur theatre set dressing, props & furniture, Sumi-é (Japanese Ink Painting), making greetings cards and finally I was led to BEADS. I always said I didn't make jewelry and then I came across vintage buttons. It’s definitely ‘a journey’ but that's how this stuff works for a lot of people who have to experience multiple media to find that one thing that feeds the soul. I love Mother Nature’s gems, they feel good in my hands and I love the way designs come together differently for each stone. I love beads and how they interact when stitched collectively.  

The beautiful concert created makes my heart sing.

Knitted & Woven Wearable Art

Raeus Jae Cannon is a fiber artist using knitting and pin loom weaving to create one-of-a-kind wearable art pieces. Raeus discovered her mother’s 1930’s pin loom at age seven and quickly was hooked on the little loom that kept her occupied for hours. However, the loom was set aside for more than 40 years until after Raeus was introduced to knitting. Raeus focuses on the back of a garment that’s so often ignored. She wants people to compliment the wearer from the front saying: “you look wonderful today!” from the back she wants them to hear: “your coat/sweater is beautiful!”
