About

http://judylenzin.blogspot.com.

The most apt description for my work is that of a quiltmaker gone berserk with beads. I actually led a double life of quilt-maker and fancy-beaded-bag maker for a while! I'd been sewing since I was nine years old and quilting for 36 years... isn't that scary?... when I discovered jewelry making and wire-wrapping techniques. If at the beginning there was an overlap of the two families of materials, now I am entirely immersed in the precious stuff of jewelry making.

There were a number of one-quilter quilt shows in Switzerland and France. And for many years my quilts and Evening Bags could be found at David'Recherche in Lausanne, Switzerland, where I live and work. Now I am exploring other avenues to share my work with the world, starting with a few local markets and this new Etsy shop…

I like working quietly... or with ear buds listening to loud vintage music on Spotify... in my sunny studio. I am extremely happy doing what I do and I hope that that joy will come across in all the pieces I make.

Evening Bags and Fairy Pouches can still be seen on the blog, but you'll have to scroll way down because for a year or more the posts have been displaying jewelry.

For your curiosity my quilts are visible on www.lenzin.com. And to keep up with my creative process, you can go see my blog at http://judylenzin.blogspot.com.

See you soon! Judy
