I believe that the greatest beauty of mixed medium art jewelry is the immense freedom of expression for both the artist and the wearer.

More About Our Company

Tammie T. Everly

I am first and foremost, a child of our Lord Jesus Christ. I give thanks to God for the talent and blessings He has given me. I hope and pray that I use it to reflect His glory in all things.

Thank you for your support of my art.

 

My techniques and interests are extremely varied. They include such things as repurposed vintage tins and trays or silver serving pieces, vitreous enameling, metal etching, wire work, assemblages and use of many up-cycled & eco-conscious materials.

Why do you make your art?

Making things is an integral part of who and what I am and the gifts God has given me.  I grew up in a family of doers, artists and creators. It wasn’t until high school that I realized not everyone’s family were makers.  I am happiest when I am in my studio, experimenting with new ideas. Even when things don’t turn out as I envisioned, I still appreciate the time and the knowledge that I gained in the process.

What inspires you to make it?

I find myself inspired in unexpected ways. I am strongly influenced by my Catholic faith, history, vintage, colors and nature. Picking up a vintage tin or a jar of vitreous enamel in any color starts me on thoughts of all the things that come in that color, be it flowers or dishes, or even the blouse I’m wearing. From there I start to experiment, tinker and fiddle- forming, twisting, adding and subtracting until the piece reflects my vision.

I see beauty in the things others have left behind. This influences me to create art jewelry made as assemblages and ‘memory works’, which revive the original allure the pieces held while putting on a fresh, modern spin.

What’s unique or special about how you make it?

I am not afraid to make a mistake artistically, which allows me to try and concoct something new where there was nothing before. Mixing mediums, techniques and lots of tinkering are when the most serendipitous things occur for me.

And briefly, what it means to you?  

I am grateful to God for the opportunity to share my creativity with the world. I hope that my work is a blessing to the people who enjoy it.
