This week we are featuring Claire Hasemeier of Blue Quail Designs! Claire makes creative and colorful woven jewelry that bring wire, beads, and fiber together in fun new ways. Check out her story:
“I have always enjoyed creating – drawing, jewelry, ceramics, basketry, sewing.
We live in the country on top of a hill that overlooks the Mississippi River valley, and on a clear day we can see the bluffs of Illinois. I’m surrounded by colors of nature – depending on the time of the day or the time of the year. I bring this love of color into my jewelry making.
Each piece of jewelry starts with a beautiful focal bead. I like using colored threads to highlight or contrast the colors found in the bead, creating a one of a kind work of art.”
