In late 2005, Kerri Lawnsby designed her first pendant in a fused glass class in Austin...and was hooked! Within a month her husband was already asking "What are we going to do with all this jewelry?" The next day FOXY Fusions was born.
Trained as a pastel and oil painter since undergraduate school at Smith College, and instructed in design for her marketing career in Silicon Valley, Kerri quickly found that fine craft with fused glass gave her the added dimensions her creativity needed to take flight.
With a painter's eye for color theory and composition, and a designer's eye for pattern and texture, Kerri delighted in how she could use glass to handcraft contemporary jewelry, personal accessories, and unique items for the home.
"I love seeing people wearing my designs," says Kerri. "I'm always thrilled that people will put a piece of my art on their bodies...that's a huge compliment!"
Kerri's designs are inspired by current fashion trends, paintings, fine craft, and people-watching. She lives in the Austin area with her two grade-school sons, teenage daughter, and husband of 17 years.
Live music, swimming on Lake Travis, marathon running, promoting arts as a PTA volunteer, and skydiving are just some of the activities Kerri enjoys in her spare time.
