about the artist
karen cummins

Karen does "wire work." She combines a variety of unusual ethnic, natural or hand-made glass or ceramic beads with bent, twisted, and coiled Sterling silver wire to create sculptural shapes.

Her necklaces, earrings and bracelets contain such elements as free-form bent wire, "caged" beads in which a bead is wrapped in plain or twisted wire, kuchi beads of various sizes in which one wire is coiled around another and then coiled again, and other blends of wire and beads. Wire clasps with such suggestive names as pelican clasps complete the work.
