Get to Know
Anything and everything in the Arts and Crafts field has intrigued me since I was a child. My wonderful great aunt taught me to knit and crochet when I was six years old and I enjoy these crafts to this day. One of my other passions as a child was rocks. I loved them! Each one has a unique coloration and texture that has always fascinated me. I finally began working with semi-precious stones and jewelry in 2002. At first I only made jewelry as a hobby for family and friends. After moving to Idyllwild in 2006, I took another class in beading at the local bead shop to improve my skills. Upon seeing some of my own designs the shop owner, LaDawn Maerin, encouraged me to both sell my creations and to teach at her shop. Since then I have taken classes with many fine artists including Sharilyn Miller and Connie Fox and Dale "Cougar" Armstrong. My current works are in semi-precious stones and beads of all kinds. I love designing jewelry for the alpha woman in each of us--a woman who is a leader in her pack, who is confident, loyal, often whimsical, and has an aura of mystery. I hope you will enjoy my designs. Judy Aussenhofer AussenWolf Designs--jewelry for the alpha woman in each of us.
