Silver Dragon Creations by Patricia C Vener
A member of the Art Jewelry Collective Street Team on Etsy, Patricias work was already know to me when I decided that she would be my next featured Artist. The beautiful bead work you will find in her store will astound you and not only is she willing to part with some of her jewelry items but she is also willing to share some of her knowledge by selling patterns as well!!!
Exerpts from Patricias etsy bio
"I have always been an artist and one of my earliest art memories is also one of the influences that has stayed with me from the very start. I was four years old and my nursery class had a field trip to a local museum in Rochester NY. I was completely mesmerized by the textiles and beadwork of the native Americans. I don't know how long I stood there just gazing at the work and absorbing all that the creator had to say."
"I am a (retired) ballerina as well as a published artist, having done illustrations for a CD picture book, "Papa Cardinal Finds Breakfast" by Sandra Wellborn."
and this last sentiment I can only agree with
"Human beings, I think, are happiest when they are allowed to create. I know this is true for me."
