ART BY PAULETTE HOFLIN

Jewelry & Beaded Sculpture

"Beads, beads, and more beads
are a girl's best friend."

My passion for making jewelry started when I was 9 years old. I would tear apart my grandma’s old jewelry and entertain myself for hours remaking it into something I liked and would wear. Since then I have let Mother Nature inspire me and my life has been an adventure of collecting natural gemstones, shells, minerals, crystals, rocks, and unusual beads of all sizes and shapes from all over the world. I use these natural pieces to embellish and create the unique and exceptional pieces of art that can be worn and displayed.

I’m using beading techniques that have been around for thousands of years; combining them into my own creations.

Each piece is original, one of a kind, and hand crafted. When I start the process I pick the colors, texture, and size of beads. The design comes to me as I begin the construction of each piece. All beads are sewn one bead at a time (no glue) to achieve the desired results.

The colors in each exclusive piece are meant to help with creativity, healing, self love, joy, laughter, playfulness, intuition, and enchanting wonderment.
