Chris Dec
Artisan: Chris Dec
Experience: I've been designing and making beaded jewelry for over 30 years. I've searched for vintage and rare beads & components in all corners of the globe, and have researched the origin of many of the vintage beads. It has been a lesson in history for me, satisfying my curiosity and passion. Many of my favorite earrings are made with solid copper. This lovely metal will darken naturally over time, and this antique patina is desired by most wearers. However, if you want to RETAIN the LOOK and sparkle of NEW COPPER, simply make a solution of 1/4 cup white vinegar and a teasp. of salt in a little jar. Dip your earrings in this solution for a brief moment. The shine comes back. Rinse in cool water immediately & thoroughly. Do not allow solution to remain under beads. Pat dry and hang suspended to dry completely overnight.

Education: I have been a Graphic Designer for 35 years. I studied Fine Arts in at SUNY Oswego, and have studied bead jewelry crafting at several classes with various teachers both on the east coast and the west. My love of the history of beads keeps me reading and discovering.

Love my necklace and earrings.

Chris designed a necklace to go with my cracked blue agate earrings. It is beautiful. I love the hand wrought clasp that she put on it for me. She even named the necklace after me. How cool is that? How is that for service? Thanks so much, Chris for all of the great pieces that you make for us.
