I was awarded a free booth for 2023 after taking first place in the booth judging during the 2022 Lake Country Art Festival! I will see you all on Saturday July 8th 2023 in Naga-waukee Park Delafield, WI!
I am so excited to share I took 3rd place in the Fine Arts judging category at the July 2021 event! I will be back next year in 2022 for this wonderful one day outdoor art festival!
How do I describe Distinction Jewelry? It's handmade by me, Jackie. I saw, forge, file, sand, solder, clean, fuse, clean, patina, clean, set, and polish. I love unique and imperfect jewelry. When I'm designing a piece, I have an idea in mind where I want to end up but the process to get there is not a straight path. My aesthetic is rough, artistic, unique, rustic. I love organic shapes and I am inspired by mountains, flowers - pretty much all of nature! I love cutting up bezels to mimic a mountain ridge and setting an amazing stone in that rustic bezel. When finishing with filing and sanding, I accentuate the organic feel by adding notches around edges and leave some imperfections making it unique and one-of-a-kind. I use different hammers and anvils to create different textures on the metals I use (my railroad track anvil is my go to!). I am proud to say, the pieces I make are absolutely pieces I love to wear and I am excited to share my work with you!
