Long before creating commercially successful art, Lora brought artistry to everything she did. During the years she brought up her family, she worked as a face-painter at art fairs, turned her homes and gardens into showcases of unique color and ideas, she made bird houses and furniture from natural materials, she studied and perfected skills in wood-working, upholstery, painting, pottery and tile and experimented with the use of multiple mediums and styles. She became an expert in tools and materials. Her most impressive skill though is turning old timepieces into beautiful jewelry.
Terri has a B.S in Fashion Merchandising and Design from the University of Illinois at Urbana- Champaign and spent a number of years in the fashion world on both the design and manufacturing sides of the business. After many years of being a stay-at-home-Mom, Terri decided to head back to the drawing board and resume classes. She got side tracked along the way by the exciting new world of Precious Metal Clay. Always a lover of jewelry, she immediately recognized how easily her design skills could merge with the properties of metal clay and her jewelry career was off and running. Now a certified metal clay artist, her jewelry has branched out in several directions to include chain maille, dichroic glass and traditional metal work.
