We thought it would be nice to get to know a little bit more about Sherri so I asked her some questions…

What prompts you to embrace the SRAJD jewelry-making challenges?

It allows me to step outside of my comfort zone and create something different!

How did you learn your craft?

This business was given to me in a dream. God has truly blessed me with a talent that I love to share with anyone I meet.

What do you think is the most interesting thing about your creative expression?

I create from the heart and God is my inspiration! With no prior experience in beading, I feel that I have learned so much on this short three year journey. And am excited to learn more.

What themes do you pursue?

I strive for Elegance & Uniqueness.

Did you always want to be a jewelry artist?

Before my dream, I never knew I wanted to become a jewelry artist. However, I have always enjoyed living outside the box.

What are the biggest challenges that you face as a self-representing jewelry artist?
Mass produced jewelry! My creations are OOAK handcrafted designs. They are so personal to me that each piece is named.

What role does the artist have in society?

Stand back at look at everything in a room. From the furniture to the drapes, someone somewhere had to design it. You had to like each and every piece of furniture or fixtures in your home to purchase them. Without ART the eARTh would be "eh."

What does the future hold for you?

The last three years seemed surreal. God has blessed me with SenoJ Designs and
I am truly humbled. I have an opportunity of a lifetime next year and I am overjoyed. God hasn't brought me this far, to leave me now.

Sherri, thanks for taking the time to answer these questions. It’s an immense pleasure seeing your work and getting to know you better!
