Acrylic State Pendants and Links

Handmade by Jamie Holler

Jamie lives in the quaint town of Waxhaw, North Carolina near Charlotte. She started making jewelry several years ago as a fundraiser for the Avon Breast Cancer Walk. When people stopped to ask about her jewelry, she decided to “set up shop”. Jamie still works full time but enjoys sourcing unique gemstones for her jewelry and creating pieces others will enjoy. With assistance from her husband they have embarked on a venture with a laser cutter and are enjoying the seemingly endless opportunities to create custom pieces using acrylic, wood, leather, glass and the list goes on. Jamie displays her pieces in a local store in Waxhaw, NC, and at many shows in both North and South Carolina..

We are happy to order these fun focal pieces in other state shapes. Just drop us a line at order@cherrytreebeads.com with your requests!

Galactic Glass Pendants

Galactic Glass Pendants

We are proud to feature our friends and dichroic glass artists, Andy Ray and David Sigler. These beautiful, one-of-a-kind, dichroic glass pendants are handcrafted by the father and son team, out of Oregon.

Each piece has dichroic glass at the core and is twisted and wrapped with borosilicate glass. Dichroic glass was created by the space industry. Using a high temperature vacuum furnace, titanium, silicon, and magnesium are deposited on the glass. The glass is then vaporized creating a brilliant array of colors; the sparkling, glittery part of each pendant.

Once created, each piece is annealed for a minimum of 8 hours in a computer controlled kiln to assure strength and durability. Every pendant is a unique work of wearable art. Each one is dated and signed by the artist.

Wooden Pendants by Aspiring Artists of the Earth

by Tari Zarka of Aspiring Artists of the Earth

These 100% U.S.A. made artisan crafted wooden components are made from the original drawings of artist Tari Zarka with the help of her team in her studio in Bucks County, PA. Each piece combines state of the art technology and good old hand craftsmanship. Each is crafted from U.S.A. hardwoods. Due to the natural beauty of hard woods and the hand finishing process each piece will have slight variations that are signature to this collection.

Artist Statement:

What drives me to create is the same thing that motivates me to be the best person: sharing positivity. When I create something - whether it is a piece of glass, a drawing, a painting, or a smile on someone's face - my life's burdens are lifted. I am also driven by the knowledge that my creations enhance the moods of those who receive them. I find inspiration everywhere - in the glorious landscape, through the face of adversity, within the cashier at a convenience store, etc. Everything and everyone offers a chance for us to learn and grow. Ever since I started creating art in the far away corners of my family's hosiery mill in Bucks County, which I am now working to repurpose into an artist’s haven, I have searched to find ways to love what I do each and every day. If something from me inspires another to move toward a life of happiness then I feel that I have done my job.

This is the current in my artistic evolution.
