April Guest Artist Dee Cooper

Dee Cooper is a fiber artist who specializes in creating complex mixed medium collage jewelry.  Inspiration flows from a focal stone, glass, shell, or other natural object.  Complimentary fibers are added that will enhance the creation.  These may include soutache braid, shibori silk, fabric, and ultra suede.  Shells, beads, crystals, and various types of glass are added, and like magic, a pair of earrings, a necklace or a bracelet appears!

Dee is originally from Maine, and is active with the Southwest Florida Fine Craft Guild, where she finds friendship and lots of inspiration.
