Sheri Cole has been designing jewelry for 20 years. This creative pursuit began as a hobby, first learning to make dream catcher earrings. Loving the shimmer, color and feel of beads she pursued her interest in making unique jewelry. .Largely self taught, Sheri has worked with wire, stained glass, alcohol inks, metals, cold connections and chain maille.
Sheri also works as a social worker, often with women, and admires their strength, courage and resiliency amidst adversity. Each woman is unique and powerful and jewelry provides the perfect avenue for expression. Inspiration for the designs comes from many places – nature, color, movement, even mistakes! Each piece of jewelry created is dreamed of and designed in Saskatoon.
“Shimmer” is her latest collection, a combination of stainless steel, aluminum and Swarovski crystals and pearls. Stainless steel has a bright silvery finish which is resistant to tarnish. It is also light weight and durable. It has become an increasingly popular choice for jewelry. The flow of this metal seems akin to the movement of water. The flow and edge of steel with the vibrancy of the crystals and pearls creates beautiful combinations – a blending of the masculine and feminine. Strong but soft, powerful but tender, simple but striking. Yin and Yang.
