VanTassell Turquoise Pendant, Sea Grape GalleryOur 3D Artist of the Month for May and June is Silver Jewelry Artist Nancy VanTassell.    Nancy has been creating art jewelry for 18 years. Her designs have evolved through that time to her current obsession, wire weaving, and she has been weaving for nine of the 18 years. With continuous exploration and experimentation, this art continues to keep her attention and passion. Wire weaving is an age-old technique of taking different gauges of wire and intertwining them together. Nancy uses sterling and fine silver, incorporating semi-precious stones, faceted gemstones, and sometimes, it’s just all about the wire. In addition to designing one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces, Nancy spends much of her time teaching her art form in private and group settings.
