I would like to introduce you to Alecia Cox of Heartworks Studio. I had the pleasure of meeting Alecia several years ago when she moved to Whidbey Island. While she no longer lives on the island, she has become a dear friend. Alecia creates lovely, sweet little treasures, and I am delighted to have her participate in our Holiday Open House next Monday, November 14. I asked Alecia to answer a few questions and share a few photos of her work…..
Q. How long have you been making your jewelry?
A. Two years ago I bought a Jewelry Solder Kit for myself as a Christmas gift, and have been designing and making charms since then. I love that they are small treasures, a challenging tiny “canvas,” easy to make, can be customized and are versatile.
Q. I know many of your pieces have messages or special meaning. Can you share a little about this?
A. Since my business mission is “Bringing inspiration, beauty and art to life,” I try to create items supporting that philosophy. I also enjoy using “found” or unusual items; I just made charms from some of my vintage marbles! I also make greeting cards and have prints available this year of two photos that received 2nd place ribbons at the Evergreen State Fair.
Q. What inspires you?
A. I find it rewarding to use my creativity in hopes that it will be a delight for others to discover. I hope you can join us for the Holiday Open House and discover some gifts for giving ~ Happy Holidays!
Thank you so much, Alecia! We will be looking forward to seeing you and your creations next Monday!
