Sheridan Joslin, of Joslin Jewels, creates wire wrapped and beaded jewelry. But all it takes is one look at her shop and you can tell immediately that her art involves so much more than "just" wire and beads!
“Whether simple or intricate, I meticulously craft each piece of jewelry I create. I use only fine metals and carefully selected gemstones. Each piece is original and most are one of a kind. I love gemstones as much as I love a good puzzle. Making intricate wire jewelry is like a challenging puzzle. It involves shaping and forging straight wire into intricate designs with no soldering -- only wrapped connections. It's an art that dates back thousands of years, and many of the techniques used today are the same as those used in ancient times. With only a few simple tools and careful manipulation, a skilled jewelry artist can sculpt wire into beautiful works of wearable art.”
And that is exactly what Sheridan does with her work. Check out her shop and be amazed!
