Lisa Belt's Profile
I live in Portland, Oregon with my husband, our 7-year old twin sons, and a screwball dog named Bonnie.
I have made jewelry since I was a little girl. When I was 6 years old, I started stringing dried watermelon seeds on a piece of thread. Somewhere I still have that unfinished project: 6 inches of crispy seeds on a black thread. Later that year, my mother bought me a bead loom, and I was hooked on beads. I still have those bracelets as well.
I graduated from The California College of the Arts with a degree in Painting, so my more serious artistic side is fed that way. The fun stuff is still making jewelry. Also fun for me -- wearing it!
I'm drawn to natural materials, so I prefer to work with genuine stones. I love the contrast of polished against rough. I like rocks…
