Our first giveaway prize is this glass tile necklace entitled "Hands of Time" by Keri Speidel of Creative Genius Art. Her most recent venture involves jewelry made from hand drawn images and collage, but she uses many other different mediums including painting, collage, jewelry, illustration and photography. She is most famously known for her love of working backwards on old windows. She was born and raised in Iowa and currently lives in Lisbon, Iowa. She attended Cornell College to become an art teacher and taught for a few years before taking a break to become Super Mom to her two boys. She makes her art from her kitchen table in her "spare" time. She does a variety of meaningful personalized gifts perfect for all types of occasions. In her own words: "I love to create things especially for people, to really touch their heart when they see it and know it is just what they wanted. If you can think of it, I can probably make it for you (keyword being 'probably.')"
At our open house Keri will have a variety of items for sale including window paintings, smaller wood paintings, and glass tile necklaces.
You can find more of her work on her blog:
