5/7/2012 9:01:00 AM Sedona Treasures features Kaayla Fox
Sedona Jeweler Kaayla Fox will be at "Sedona Treasures" at the Hillside Shops presenting her fine jewelry May 11-12, 1-3 p.m.
Kaayla is the featured "Jeweler of the Month" at Sedona Treasures a gallery dedicated to supporting local artist. The entire month of May, Sedona Treasures will feature Kaayla's fine jewelry.
On her jewelry, Kaayla says, "I create in order to know what is in my heart -- to reveal the hidden treasures and appreciate the beauty. When I incorporate crop circle images, or use metal, gemstones, and glass beads, I feel my relationship to the Earth and all that is. This is my springboard for communication and connection with others."
She made her first crop circle jewelry in 1999 after completing jewelry courses from Revere Jewelry Academy in San Francisco California.
She also undertook the commitment of mentorship with Bob Winston, a famous elderly jewelry arts designer and educator accredited with bringing the ancient lost wax casting back into practical use in the jewelry industry as early as the 1940s.
She gained his respect because she did not try to copy him as many had tried, but always demonstrated her own unique style while learning everything possible from the master.
His sense of playfulness and wonderment continues to influence Kaayla's approach to her creative and teaching endeavors.
Kaayla is an artisan by nature. She applied her active imagination in a variety of jobs and in designing for projects. One of her favorites was as a fashion counselor in the Bay Area of California for 10 years where she taught people about the psychological affects and spiritual significance of color and design.
She learned technical skills as an Architectural/Civil drafter of the infrastructures we build on our Earth. This discipline provided structure and taught her control and attention to detail which was to later reveal its value in jewelry design.
Since the main inner thrust in Kaayla's life was to grow spiritually, she developed her skills in the use of energy, healing, and psychic awareness much like a tapestry that gives the picture only after many colors and threads are woven together.
It was through her shamanic practices that she realized that her unique artistic expressions and natural healing abilities came from the spirit inside.
Sedona Treasures is located at 671 Hwy 179 at the Hillside Shops across from Javelina Cantina.
Beverages and snacks will be served during both receptions on Friday and Saturday.
