Sharron Westeren (Fraser) was born January 6th 1950 in Winnipeg, Canada. Early in her life she moved to the United States where she ended up in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Sharron married in 1983 to her husband Roger Westeren and they moved to Illinois, Arizona, back to Illinois and eventually to Las Vegas, Nevada. Sharron has always had an eye for design and a burning desire to create art and she experimented with fiber arts, glass fusion and other art forms. It was her love of jewelry and the passion to design and make it that turned out to be what she was searching for. She started designing and making jewelry for herself to wear and soon friends were asking her where she got her jewelry. She realized that there was a demand for her jewelry so Delicate Designs was born. In 2007, spurred on by the sudden closure of the casino she had worked at for 12 years, Delicate Designs became her full time business.
Converting a second bedroom in her house to her first studio; Sharron started creating her unique style of necklaces, bracelets, watches and earrings. Natural items are showcased in Sharron’s work, stones like jasper, turquoise, shells and leather. There is an emphasis of quality and most of her works feature sterling silver. Sharron started showing her work where ever she could, art shows, craft shows, home improvement shows and even a gun show! A web site, MySpace and Google presented Sharron’s work to the internet crowd. The word spread and Sharron Westeren’s Delicate Designs became recognized for unique innovative jewelry for the everyday person. Realizing that her jewelry was more than something to wear and should be seen not put in a jewelry box the concept of displaying jewelry as art was pursued. Delicate Designs Wearable Wall Art® was created. The first piece, “Wayward Heart” was created for an art show with a theme for the love of art. “Wayward Heart” combines multiple art medias with a beautiful necklace of rainbow fluorite in representing A child who has left her family to find her dreams at the end of the rainbow. Michelle Mach, Editor of Beading Daily wrote about this piece “I love the symbolism and your touching write-up” This piece can be hung on the wall and viewed as art or the necklace removed and worn out on the town.
The future looks bright for Sharron Westeren and Delicate Designs. A studio and on-line retail gallery, creative, innovative designs and a new art concept of Wearable Wall Art® are just the tip of the iceberg for this promising artist. The Las Vegas art community is growing thanks to artists like Sharron and that can only be good for the glitz and glitter of this city. Sharron is a member of the Las Vegas Artist Guild and has been an active artist with the non profit art gallery “City of the World’.
