I've been creating jewelry since high school (sometime back during the last Ice Age) when I realized that commercial jewelry bored me to tears. Limiting my jewelry to a particular style or a specific orientation would defeat the purpose of being an artist. I love the creative process, color and design. In "real" life, I'm a professional artist selling my work at craft shows, online, and in galleries. I'm also a published poet and essayist, and the local Poet Laureate. An essay further describing my creative process (and who I am) can be found here: http://www.meredithlaskow.com/index.html Meredithbead Facebook fan page: http://www.facebook.com/meredithbead In case you were wondering, my avatar is a colored pencil self-portrait I did when I was 12. From my heart, through my hands, to you.
