ARTISAN MEMBER Ann MahoneyBE KIND DESIGNS
Most of the jewelry that I make uses resin or clay. I began creating resin jewelry as a way to preserve the lovely spring and summer blooms in our perennial gardens. I think the glass-like setting makes them stand out. Making clay jewelry allows me to experiment with texture and colorful silkscreen patterns. Sometimes I combine the two and add pressed flowers to clay. Nature is a source of comfort and I hope that my jewelry will bring joy to others. I created Be Kind Designs as a way to use my hobby for good. I donate a portion of each sale to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and Feeding America.
