Merging her graphic design training with a strong background in fashion, Shari Dixon has created a line of jewelry that is not only timeless and artistically well rounded, but stylish as well.
A firm believer that women want to feel beautiful, feminine and strong all at once, her motifs incorporate natural elements and mixed media such as pressed flowers, leaves, herbs and snakeskin, immortalizing their fragile lives by sealing them in a poly resin, preserving the form and adding a spectacular glazing effect.
These elements then become a handmade design combined with curious and daring color choices in a multitude of natural stones, fresh water pearls and interesting fibers. The results are whimsical and extremely unique designs of personal adornment.
