Kathryn Bowman's Profile
An artist always, my journey has been expressed in many media. About ten years ago I started to play around with beads and I found my home. Uninspired by the metal components available on the market to complete my jewelry, I've become a metalsmith so I could make the metal closures and elements necessary for my designs. My jewelry has evolved into an eclectic mix of beads of all kinds and handmade metal pieces, bits and closures.
I have a degree in Graphic Design and this helps immensely in all of the packaging and signage needs that go along with getting my jewelry out into the world. I teach jewelry making techniques in the St. Louis area, at the Bead & Button Show annually and in my home studio. I have been published nine times in national beading magazines and always seem to have and article in the works.
