Bobbi Maw's Profile
I LOVE making things - anything really. I built the tree fort my brother and I played in as kids; I've built some of my own furniture; the filter system on my pond; my cats' kennel when they were kittens; floor to ceiling scratching posts and cats trees for my cats; some of my parrots' cage; and even some of my own jewelry tools. I've tried tons of crafts - some just to see how they're done. Some of my favorites include thrown pottery, sculpting, furniture building, wood carving, leather craft, and whip-braiding, and silk screen printing. Once in a while, some of those techniques find their way into my jewelry.
I had been 'playing' around with beads in my spare time for many, many years. A dear friend introduced me to wirework in 1988 after a car accident ended my career as a graphic artist. I fell head over heels in love with wire, and though I play with other jewelry mediums from time to time, I always come back…
