Here are two of my most popular designs created in antique brass and not their usual antique copper. It is interesting to see how different colors of the tile patterns are highlighted!

About

She's living her dream...

Cori Crooks is a seeker and teller, artfully documenting her unique take on life through a variety of media including prose, music, theater, visual art, and jewelry. Cori gained initial notoriety in 2004 through her art/life blog, “A Gag Reflex,” which followed the search for her paternity and established her as an off-beat, quirky talent with a devoted cult following of fans drawn to her edgy writing style. Her first book, a critically acclaimed mixed media art memoir entitled "Sweet Charlotte's Seventh Mistake" was published by Seal Press in 2009, garnering such accolades as the Best Book List 2009/Tulsa World, Editor's Pick/Curve Magazine, and Indie Press of the Month/Modern Times Bookstore, SF.

"Cori writes like Siouxsie screams!" says writer/filmmaker/musician, Patrick O'Neil. Her work reflects a hands on, in-the-street engagement with life, a constant thread though her diverse artistic background which has spanned writing and directing plays, recording/touring with indie rock bands, and studying Humanities at San Francisco State University.

Cori’s art work is born from thoughts about history, social class, and pop culture; blending the old and the new, exploring traditional crafts and techniques while giving them sassy modern twists. Her decorative miniature tile jewelry has been featured in group shows at the SFMOMA Artists Gallery, the California Museum, and is currently available through the the American Museum of Ceramic Art, the Phoenix Art Museum, the Catalina Island Museum, the Museum of Latin American Art, and in her online store.

Cori is now finishing her second book, "Weda", a graphic coming-of-age novel about cholas, Joan Jett, and unlikely friendships. She is the Workshops Director and Indie-craft Pop-up Coordinator for the Art Beat Foundation. She lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.

As an SF Bay Area native, I grew up around many different cultures. This good fortune has inspired my work as an artist. My creations are born from thoughts about history, social class, and pop culture; blending the old and the new, exploring traditional crafts and techniques while giving them sassy modern twists.

I am punky, crafty, and a sweet best friend & Mommy who's committed to making a living off my artistic abilities. I write and I craft and I'm currently obsessed with ETSY. I have shown my work in galleries and craft fairs all over NOCA and in NY, and currently have my tiles selling with the American Museum of Ceramic Arts, CA and the Catalina Island Historical Museum, Ca. Last December was the release of my first book, an art memoir called, "Sweet Charlotte's Seventh Mistake". (Seal Press) I love dabbling in everything- I mean everything... jewelry, ceramics, music, cooking, sculpture, shrinky dinks... the sky is the limit. So visit often and see what's happening!
Happy Shopping,
Cori Crooks
