I love creating! I believe I was born to create and to make this world a more beautiful place by my having been here. My life doesn’t feel complete if I am not making art!
My friends and customers call me “The Stone Whisperer” because the stones talk to me and tell me what to do with them. I love making pieces that tell a story, for it is in the stories that we connect.
I have always loved stones. I find that working with stones is soothing. Because they are of the Earth, stones help me to feel one with the Earth, and my Creator. I married my lover of stones to my inner “fashionista.” Together they create art jewelry made from unusual, rare and beautiful stones, fossils and artifacts. To make them into wearable art, I had to learn how to cut, design and polish stones, how to sculpt and weave with wire, plus how to weave chains out of wire, to complete the pieces. Metal-smithing and soldering classes taught me to make components for my pieces. My work is statement pieces of wearable art.
Welcome to my Art! Come and listen very carefully to the quiet whisper of the stones….maybe, one will call to you.View Carole Weaks’ Portfolio
