Celebrations by Rose

Short Description:

I retired from teaching in 2002 and decided to take a beginning jewelry class. It was love at first sight! I was intrigued by the possibility of creating art using beads and crystals. The variety of colors, shapes and sizes inspired me to experiment and want to learn everything I could about jewelry-making. In the ensuing years, I took dozens of classes on a variety of techniques, but never wavered from my love of beads. I started a business called Celebrations by Rose and found that my jewelry had popular appeal. My work has been featured in shops across the St. Louis area. In 2012, I was invited to become one of the charter members of Missouri Artists on Main in St. Charles, MO. Being surrounded by the gorgeous art at MAOM has encouraged me to continue to grow and learn. And, as an added bonus, I have been given the opportunity to teach my skills to others, while I continue to use beads in ever-changing ways.

About Our Art

My jewelry career has been a journey.  When I first started, I was “making” jewelry…it was pretty, but I am not sure it was art.  In spite of that, I was juried into Missouri Artists on Main in 2012.  I work in the gallery 3 or 4 days a month, and I was inspired by all of the beautiful art.  I wanted change my jewelry into what I considered art.

I have picked up so many skills in the 17 years of jewelry design.  About two years ago, I discovered bead embroidery!  I felt that I had arrived!  In bead embroidery, I use no pattern…I start with a center stone that I like and create a one-of-a-kind work of art.  It is not a short process…some of my pieces have taken weeks, if not months.  But I love it, am always ready for the next project and feel that there are not enough hours in the day. I want to sew little beads together until I can no longer see or hold a needle.  I am proud to say that I am an artist!
