Featured: CalysJewelryCreations


Our Featured Studio this week is "CalysJewelryCreations" aka Dawn.
This is a wonderful studio that showcases jewelry with a very strong "ocean and beach" influence.
Of course, there is a reason for this. There once was a time when Dawn had a desire to become a Marine Biologist. But, as we all know life is unpredictable and has many different roads for us to travel down.
The road that Dawn has traveled is the one of the crafter--sounds familiar???
Dawn loves working with her hands. She has enjoyed needle work, photography, creating mosaics, and working with ceramics. However, creating jewelry has been her greatest passion.
She began creating jewelry about 6 years ago and has never regretted not pursuing the career of a Marine Biologist.
How lucky we are that she has traveled down the road of the crafter.
Dawn's jewelry creations are a lovely reflection of her appreciation and love of the beach, ocean, and nature. Her theme for her jewelry is "funky and fun with beach attitude".

Here are some of her "funky and fun with beach attitude" jewelry creations that are showcased in her studio "CalysJewelryCreations".

Earrings:

Necklaces:

Bracelets:

Here are some of the fabulously funky and lovely "naked sandals" that she is "famous" for creating:



All of Dawn's jewelry is quite unique and beautiful but these naked sandals are really so cool and fun.
When visiting "CalysJewelryCreations" one can not miss how well she has used her love of the ocean and nature in creating her jewelry. She definitely is true to her "funky and fun with beach attitude" theme.
I would also like to thank Dawn for being so supportive of the other members of our guild. You will find her posting on our guild threads on Artfire on a regular basis. So, with this in mind let's be there to support her this week to repay her for her wonderful support.
Now, please take some time to visit her studio to enjoy her many designs.
Btw, you will also find some lovely jewelry supplies as well.

Oh, love the naked sandals! Those are way cool. Maybe I should re-think not liking to walk barefoot.
