About

CherylKnoxArt.Rocks

Welcome to my shop! My studio assistants consist of rescued (formerly feral) cats and resident pets. They share my tranquil studio that is nestled in the woods, surrounded by nature, overlooking a beautiful pond. The natural surroundings inspire my fine art, stained glass, and jewelry creations.

My family and I have spent nearly two decades doing cat rescue, advocating TNR (Trap/Neuter/Release), humane education and spay/neuter. I enjoy fostering for a phenomenal non-profit called Sparkle Cat Rescue, located in Burlington, NC.

My jewelry interests consist of manipulating various metals with textures, enamels, and by incorporating other materials, including the "best of the best" hand-crafted artisan glass lamp work from glass artists around the world, unique charms, sea glass and shells from different parts of the world.

Many of my pastel landscapes are framed in repurposed wood from homes destroyed in Hurricane Katrina--authentic layers of peeling paint, and all! Wood from shanties built from the ancient Cypress trees from the innermost Louisiana bogs. Otherwise, I use traditional frames for a clean, crisp, look.

My stained glass is free form and original in design. What fun it is to break glass! It's most relaxing, UNLESS it is a temperamental, very expensive and rare sheet of glass that is retired from production. The colors and varieties are endless, the finishes are almost endless. The combination of the two make "the sky the limit" as far as possibilities and combinations of what can be created! I especially like to incorporate Swarovski crystals when possible. The added dimension of rainbows dancing across the room is nothing short of heavenly.

Thank you for visiting, stop back often. There is always new work in progress!

Welcome!
CherylKnoxArt.Rocks is an online art gallery featuring my handmade jewelry, stained glass, and pastel landscapes.
Foster cats and resident pets share the tranquility of my studio, which is nestled in the woods overlooking a pond in beautiful North Carolina. This is where all my creations are born, then presented to you via CherylKnoxArt.Rocks online gallery.

My jewelry interests consist of working with various metals and textures, colorful enamels, etching, patinas, and by incorporating other materials, pearls, gemstones, including the "best-of-the-best" hand-crafted glass lamp work beads by fabulous glass artists from around the world, as well as charms, sea glass, shells, and other unique findings.

My pastel landscapes are usually land or waterscapes. Some are intentionally created to integrate with unusual, one-of-a-kind frames, such as the repurposed wood frames made from the wood of ancient cypress shanties destroyed during Hurricane Katrina. These are particularly beautiful frames with authentic, aged, layer upon original layers of peeling paint. I love these little gems, as they exist to respectfully memorialize a small remnant of Louisiana life and history that perished during Hurricane Katrina in Aug. 2005.

My stained glass panels are original designs. I especially like to configure a crystal in the negative space, or as a dangle. The Swarovski crystals are an exceptional element, as they best capture light and create beautiful rainbows.

Thank you for visiting and stop back often, there are always new works in progress!

Additional policies and FAQs
GENERAL INFORMATION-CARING FOR YOUR ENAMELED ITEMS: Enamel is a form of lead-free glass and is completely safe to wear. It will not irritate the skin. Since the base is metal (copper or silver) it is much more durable than glass on its own. However, chipping or cracking can occur if it is dropped, so it should be treated with care when handling it.

To clean enamel jewelry, simply use a soft cloth and wipe clean. DO NOT use anything abrasive to clean the enamel surface. Enamels should avoid contact with strong chemicals.

GENERAL INFORMATION-CARING FOR YOUR COPPER ITEMS: Copper is popular in many different styles of jewelry, from ethnic designs in handmade jewelry to modern pieces. When new and unfinished, it can be as shiny and pink as rose gold. Over time, the copper will develop a patina and darken into a warm brown color. Although copper tarnishes easily, it is popular with artisans and jewelers who love to work with the soft metal. Follow these instructions to care for your copper jewelry.
Caring for Copper Jewelry:

Clean your copper jewelry whenever you notice that it is becoming dingy or dirty. This will depend on how often you wear it. To clean it, prepare a mixture of warm water and a few drops of mild soap. Then dip a soft rag into the mixture and wipe your copper clean. Rinse with clean water and dry the jewelry gently with a soft cloth.
Polish your copper jewelry to maintain the pink color and shine. Do this every time you see the color darkening. Prepare a cup of lemon juice and add a dash of salt. Dip your copper jewelry into the lemon juice and swirl it around a bit. This will remove the patina that comes with tarnishing. Remove your jewelry and rinse it off thoroughly with water. Let the jewelry dry completely before wearing it. You can also use a jewelry polishing cloth to polish your copper if you don't have lemon juice handy.
Store your copper jewelry in a plastic zipper bag to prevent air from tarnishing it when you aren't wearing it. On the other hand, you can let it develop a rich patina if you like that look.
