GERRIE MAFFRISGerrie Maffris - carved rose cabochon bracelet

Gerrie has taught us a new word – cabochon – a highly polished, non faceted jewel.  A talented jewelry designer, her’s are crafted from polymer and metal clays set in a corded macrame setting. Each piece is focused on the cabochon and the final style ranges from vintage to contemporary.


Wood, acrylics, photo transfers, nails, wire, copper, paper …. they all make their way into Karin’s mixed media wall art. Ranging in size, color and materials her work creates an interesting focus for conversation.Karin Stolle - Copper Flower
