The lush scenery around Oregon has influenced my work. Earthy, organic and highly textured pieces reflect the great Northwest I dearly love.

I package all of my work in gift boxes made from 100% recycled material.

I am a Self-Representing Artist Jewelry Designer (SRAJD #0678). When you purchase from an SRAJD member, you are buying directly from, and supporting the artist.

ORBS (Oregon Regional Beaders Society) is a diverse group of glass beadmaking artists that I am a member of. We gather to exchange information, ideas and knowledge, promote education and bask in the fellowship of other glass beadmakers.

I am a member of the Portland Etsy Street Team, as well as Considerations-The Art of Marketing at http://considerations.ning.com/profile/CharOuellette
