Sorry for the frenetic nature of my posts this week…it fits my pace these days. The whole family has arrived for our annual Easter holiday…11 under one roof. Chaos reigns…but memories are made of this!!!

michele-gradyMichele Grady started making jewelry at a very early age. “When I was 10 years old, I made my very first ring from a piece of copper wire I found in my father’s desk drawer of his basement workshop. I twisted and bent it until my little heart was content. Then with a second piece I made a “matching” one for my little sister. I was very proud of these rings and I wore mine everyday no matter how green the copper turned my finger. Looking back, I know it was then that I fell in love with making jewelry. Little did I know that years later I would still be just as excited to shape wire and metal into beautiful works of wearable art. Those rings were the very first pieces of metal jewelry I ever made and I still have my little copper wire ring to this day. It hangs on the wall on a pushpin next to my workbench in my studio.”

glass-harbor3Skimming though an old American Style magazine, I ran across an ad for Glass Harbor…colorful necklaces made of swirled glass disks. Dawn Harbor’s “jewelry is inspired by working in harmony with the flow of the glass in the flame. Creating glass in this way produces intimate sculptures that are organic and spontaneous. Following the inspiration that flows into the glass elements, Dawn creates graceful, engaging jewelry that is sensual and evocative of appetite for life.”

erica-rosenfeldErica Rosenfeld’s work tells stories about the fabric of pe0ple’s lives and the rituals created to bring comfort to our lives. “I use glass, found materials, beads and food to create sculpture and jewelry, which remain my primary mode of expression.   I began beading at the age of five, from which I realized a consistent impulse to create cohesive, sometimes incongruous, mosaics from smaller components.  In my twenties, I began working with glass, both blowing and kiln working. My instinct was, and remains, to sculpt and carve glass, creating form from seemingly shapeless substance.”

Nirit Dekel was always ‘into art’, but she didn’t discover her passion for it until 2000. “As I graduate university I was swept into the high-tech wave and had a career in one of the largest high-tech firms in Israel. With time I felt that I’m missing my main love – art & craft. As I saw Chihuly’s exhibition at David’s tower in Jerusalem’s wall as part of the festivities of year 2000 it was like an alarm clock waking me back to life. I was drawn as magnet to the glass material and immediately fell in love with it. I’m fascinated by glass because I find it a manifold material. It’s a daily life casual material yet has the ability of becoming delicate, refined and elegant and can be played with in an infinite possibilities.”
