Jewels from the Co-Lab

Below are some photos of QC Co-lab member Shari of @JewelsbyShari who recently had her jewelry on display at the Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds during the Black Hawk Gem & Mineral Show. Shari is a self-taught artist who has perfected her skills over the last 20 years. Her crafty beginnings started with building one of a kind dreamcatchers. She was commissioned to make a pair of tiny dreamcatcher earrings by a customer and discovered her love of jewelry making.  Since then her offerings have grown from earrings into a wide array of rings, bracelets, and necklaces. Her wire wrapping work is unique and intricate. Each of Shari’s pieces pictured below illustrates the delicacy of her work. Through Shari’s journey in jewelry making, Shari found her inspiration to create her own one handcrafted glass beads. All of the glass beads shown are painstakingly crafted by Shari. Shari and her amazing art can be found by visiting her Facebook and Instagram pages @jewelrybyshari.
