About Sherry Serafini



http://www.serafinibeadedjewelry.com/

Sherry Serafini is a beadwork artist who has been creating beaded body adornment since 1997. Unusual objects and shapes become part of a new story as Sherry stitches beads and gemstones to a felt like base. Most pieces are born spontaneously as the beads and Sherry's imagination dictate the design. She seldom works from sketches.Sherry finds this meditative form of art to be a rich counterpoint to a society full of instant gratification. Sherry lectures and teaches throughout the U.S. and her work has been published widely.

Sherry has also won numerous awards for her beaded artwork including People's Choice Bead Dreams 2006, Jurors Merit Award 2006 Bead International, Best of Pennsylvania Artisans and Kennedy Best Artist Nationally. Her work is published widely in trade magazines throughout the industry. Sherry's one of a kind designs have been worn by several celebrities including, icon Steven Tyler of Aerosmith who also used the beadwork for promotional materials on the bands tour.

Sherry co-authored the book "The Art of Bead Embroidery", with dear friend and artist Heidi Kummli, published by Kalmbach and is featured in Masters: Beadweaving published by Lark.
