Valkyree's Profile

I am a self-taught jewelry designer... mostly for hobby, recently venturing into the land of the art show circuit. Dare I? :) Graphic designer by day, jewelry artist by night, I enjoy silver, stones, seeds, pearls, glass and paper beads from Uganda... The jump rings I use and some of the findings are hand-made by me...made with fine or sterling silver. My heritage is Scandinavian, so I became very interested in viking knit, or trichopoly. I create single, double and triple viking knit, and now multi-colored viking knit using fine silver, argentium and sterling....also using permanently colored copper in a multitude of colors. The pieces are finished with sterling silver, gold-plated, or vintage findings and bails from which beautiful pendants and beads are hung or simply plain or with floating glass or hand-turned exotic wood beads made by my husband. I love showing people how to create viking knit, and plan on teaching classes in the near future. I live in a rural area of Ohio in a log home with my husband and two Australian cattle dogs...
