About

Retired, Normal Challenged Artist Goes Crazy with Jewelry

Hello! I am Terri aka Pop Art Diva™ aka The Martini Diva™. I am a normal challenged artist with a passion for creating colorful art, designing wearable art jewelry and creating bespoke cocktails.

My life is all about creativity. I was born with a crayon in my hand and a passion for art that led me to art school, a 40+ year career as a professional, freelance illustrator, 30 years doing art shows across the U.S. and, finally, to a retirement where I still spend my days on the art, cocktail mixology and designing that I love.

I was born in Kansas, grew up in California (Orange County, Bay Area and Santa Rosa) and I now live in Tucson with my cream tabby, Bailey, lots of cacti and assorted desert critters.

I blissfully spend my time awash and buried in watercolors, paper beads, jewelry findings and curious (and sometimes disrupting) visits from Bailey as I listen to blues, golden oldies or zydeco music. (Oh, OK - and some Netflix bingeing.)

I'm really finicky when it comes to my art, my jewelry and my cocktail picks/fashion pins. I'll spend hours on fine details, I use the best materials and I hunt second hand shops, markets, estate sales and garage sales for special and antique beads for those special touches you can't buy from a bead shop.

When it comes to my paper beads, I don't use existing magazines or papers but I create my own papers with the same watercolors and watercolor papers I use for the hand-painted pendants.

You can check out all my jewelry making processes here: http://popartdiva.blogspot.com/p/blog-page_17.html

I enjoy having one-of-a-kind things that no one else has and I try to bring that experience to my for my collectors as well. That's why you won't find more than one of any of my creations. I never reproduce a piece.

I love my art, my cat, Bailey, and Happy Hour. I enjoy cooking and apply my culinary training these days to creating healthy, signature cocktails. I enjoy gardening but live in a small home so I grow herbs, edible flowers, succulents and the occasional dust bunny.

Frequently asked questions

Do you do custom orders?

Yes, but I have very specific conditions for custom orders.
Please message/convo me to inquire.
I can also do matching earrings for wedding parties and other similar events.

Are you the Terri Dennis who sold paper jewelry to (Neiman Marcus, Nordstoms, Macys, Harrods, wherever) in the late 80s and 90s?

Yes, I am that Terri Dennis. I had a line of wearable art paper jewelry that sold worldwide in the 80s and 90s.

Guess I have a thing for making paper jewelry!

Care instructions

CARE INSTRUCTIONS ARE INCLUDED IN ALL SHIPMENTS.

Is the Jewelry lightweight?

Yes, both the necklaces and earrings are extremely lightweight considering their size. The paper pendants and earrings are extremely lightweight and the only weight involved comes from the beads.

Why don't you accept returns or exchanges?

All my products are either personal wear (jewelry) or food related and I cannot accept returns or exchanges for hygiene reasons.
