Coleen d’Avignon has been beading since the late 80’s. Originally perfecting her technique in Sedona, Arizona, she applied her beadwork to her hand crafted leather bags that reflected the style of the Southwest.
After moving to Maui in 2004, she was introduced to the art of Japanese Kumihimo. By using this technique - combined with her own, 8 strands of beads along with mixtures of freshwater pearls and precious and/or semiprecious gems are woven together to create her one-of-a-kind necklaces. Her ‘Island Cascades’ have become another way for her to showcase her love of stones and to highlight the beauty of what Mother Nature has already created.
Constantly inspired by the beauty and color of Maui, she uses her beads as the palette from which she 'paints' the delicate and sensual colors of her jewelry.
Do you have an event coming up? Looking for that a special gift? Let me know.
