Barbara Remick's Profile

About

Hi there! Thanks for taking the time to visit Sweet Cedar on Etsy. My name is Barbara and I am happily living in Santa Barbara, Calif. Please be sure to visit my blog too! www.sweetcedar.com. I learned to make jewelry back in high school and selling my sterling silver pieces helped pay my way through college where I earned my degree in studio art. Thirty years later, I have dusted off my old tools and rediscovered why I love creating jewelry! I work mostly with precious metal clay which is sculpted, dried and then fired to become solid metal. I work in sterling silver, fine silver, bronze, copper and steel clay. In many pieces I include glass I fuse myself, semiprecious stones and artifacts.

I really enjoy doing custom work, so let me make a special item you will love wearing or giving as a gift!

In 2015 I left my job as a school administrator and teacher of 30 years to follow my passion. Now, I am a full time jewelry artist and love being able to focus on my craft and on pleasing my customers! I love meeting people at the many fine art and dog shows I sell at each year throughout California. My show schedule is available on my website: www.sweetcedar.com.

What or who is Sweet Cedar? She's one of the three adorable Labradors I live with. She's always at my feet when I'm creating jewelry. Her wild child sister Clover is just that, wild, but very lovable too. They also need lots of exercise, so they don't let me sit for too long! Woof. And then there is Scooter, the biggest yellow bundle of love you'd ever meet. He is also my best shedder... can you say vacuum daily?

I also sell my jewelry at the 50 year long arts venue in Santa Barbara, the weekly Arts and Crafts Show on Cabrillo Boulevard. Every Sunday, along the beautiful Santa Barbara shoreline roughly 200 local fine artists and crafts people sell their hand made wares. This show is an important part of keeping the arts flourishing in Santa Barbara County. I love meeting people from all over the world each week and they have given me have a new appreciation for my hometown. For more about the beach show, visit my blog at www.sweetcedar.com.
