About Carole Grisham

I am inspired to create wearable art that is elegant and contemporary in style yet traditionally hand crafted using historical techniques in new and unlikely ways.  Using historical wooden braiding stands of Japanese origin, I create vibrantly colored textile and beaded jewelry from fine silk, cotton and monofilament threads and small glass beads, stones and found objects.  Materials and unusual embellishments are carefully selected to make each piece a small treasure.  All work is done meticulously by hand, bead by bead and thread to thread.
