After you read about our artists Click here to go to the BLING Gallery to see a sample of what is for sale at LEAA Art Centre in Marion

Teresa Boaz: has a unique ability to incorporate metal and stones within her designs. Teresa is currently expanding her skills and taking classes in lapidary methods. We will have to wait till she has more pieces designed before we show her metal work.

Rose Mary Crear: Has a wonderful eye in the selection of stones and beads she uses in her designs. I personally think is what she is noted for in creating the beautiful pieces she has on display.

Bonnie Davis: has a wonderful imagination when she designs and you can see that in her work. She adds so many different elements and textures, that one-of-a-kind is one way to explain her design skills.

Gloria Debeljuk: Has recently joined our group. Gloria uses unique beads from Italy and incorporates those into her pieces that she designs. She has wonderful vision and balance.

Lori Helfrich: has a sense of style that blends beads uniquely by color, shape and size. Her added embellishments add the definitive touch to her work.

Margie Parr: also joined recently and we are delighted to have 2 more talented women added to the group. Margie adds a delightful balance of color and pattern to her beadwork. Her bracelets are now on display and you really must see them to appreciate the workmanship involved.

Nancy Proctor: has a playful and upbeat style to her jewelry design. I also favor her folk-art mix that we see once in awhile as well.

Jeri Palmer: has an endless imagination. Her handmade glasswork and wire wrapping are truly unique in everyway, shape and form.

Jewell Young: unique is only one way I would express her work. Her designs are fresh, new and very well thought out. Her talents amaze me each time she brings in a new piece of jewelry. You need to see her wire wrapping to really appreciate her skills.
