My name is Valerie Lewis. I'm thrilled to be a the North American distributor for Goldie Bronze™ metal clay - it's new, it's fabulous, and you can read all about it here.
Each piece of jewelry in my collection is crafted entirely by hand. My jewelry pieces feature one, or a combination of my lampwork Boro glass beads, fine silver sculpted, forged and polished components, sterling silver, Swarovski crystals, Bali silver, and a generous helping of *bling*.
All pieces are one of a kind and original, and are created with extreme attention to detail, wearability and comfort, destined to become a favorite in your collection.
I live with 2 dogs, and 1 1/2 cats. ;) We live in a small wooden house in the middle of the forest, deep in the Laurentian mountains of Quebec, Canada. I love color and texture, and have a beautiful garden, and wonderful Studio, both of which I have built with my own two hands. Much of the inspiration for my art comes from the natural beauty that surrounds me every day.
I work with first quality Glass Alchemy, Northstar/Precision, Parramore, and Momka Borosilicate glass, and of course use Goldie Bronze™ in many of my creations.
I consider myself extremely lucky to have found these art forms which evoke such strong passion, and which provide me with so much gratification. I also consider myself extraordinarily blessed to be able to pursue my dreams of creating, and thanks to my beloved customers, to be able to share it with so many others.
You can view pictures of some of my work in my Gallery , and please check back soon as I will be adding lots of new things in the New Year.
Please don't hesitate if ever I can be of any help or service to you. Wishing you lots of fun and laughter, and much joy creating ~ Val
