May 12, 2021 - Craig Ewing
We continue to meet virtually via Zoom. TBS members will be sent the link via email the week of the presentation. Join us this month when our guest speaker will be Craig Ewing.
I have been an artist of many mediums my entire life. Twelve years ago, I focused on beading, and I have never looked back. I am proudly, predominantly a self-taught beader, designing, creating unique wearable art for my clients. My main focus of design uses seed beads, Swarovski elements, natural agates and freshwater pearls, but not limited to these mediums, which I incorporate as focal points. I am starting to recreate with up-cycled components. Now a published artist and teacher, I still continue to grow and experiment.
My inspirations come primarily from the roaring 20-30’s, and the glam of yester-year. I especially enjoy working with today’s rich array of metal finishes available on beads. I find great reward working with individuals creating a custom piece of “art you love to wear.”
Though I enjoying using a wide variety of stitches and techniques, my favorite is becoming “bead embroidery.” Very rarely the design I start with sketched out is the one that I finish with. I find that the piece evolves as you embroider and work with it. It starts ‘to speak to you.”
I look forward to my future as an artist and exploring this amazing art form.
