Tammie Everly, Artist

 

I believe that the true beauty of my mixed medium, up-cycled jewelry, is the freedom of expression for both the artist and the wearer. This feeling is coupled with a true sense of history from the repurposed components which began as a utilitarian object and evolved into an art piece.

I incorporate multiple techniques and a variety of materials with a focus on vintage steel containers & trays, vitreous enamels, metals, wire,  repurposed items, and found objects into a creation that is as unique as the person who chooses to wear it.

I grew up with very artistic & talented parents who were always making something out of nothing. So it’s not surprising that I grew up with creating as a big part of my life.
I have been married 25+ years to a wonderful husband who has always supported my “habit’. After years of giving things away as gifts ~both he and my friends have encouraged me to step out into the world and make my offerings available to others.

Thanks so much for looking 🙂
