Here is another fabulous artist who will be exhibiting at show, Julie Broshat of Julz! I can't wait to get my hands on one of those belt buckles!
I’m from a family of 6 (4 brothers and a “sista”), wife, mom to 3 boys (one already in college and my twin babies head off in the fall…boo-hoo!). I’ve been putz-ing with art for years. When the boys were little we always had a project going. As they got older and didn’t want to make snowman garland, sculpted masks (I still have them displayed and LOVE them), and greeting cards I started coming up with my own projects. That eventually led me to embellishing belt buckles. I’ve always worn belts (needed to for the gaping back of my jeans…you know what I mean???)...but they were pretty basic. I love any and all accessories and thought, “why not make a buckle a statement piece”! And that was the start of it. I now embellish all sorts of buckles with many different materials…old hardware, other metals, old jewelry and gemstones, rhinestones, and anything else I can find! Each buckle is an original and totally unique. I LOVE what I do…just wish I had more time to create!!!

I love to dig into a pile of jewelry bits like those and create something special.
