In March, we’re honored to showcase the work of Sheryl Ness, aka Lilybella Designs. Sheryl is a native Minnesotan who has always been fascinated with rocks and stones of any kind. Her love of these materials has led her to investigate and bring out the beauty in many stones that others may simply deem as common.
Nowadays, Sheryl splits her time between Siena, Italy (where she met the love of her life, an Italian chef!) and Rochester. Where ever she goes, Sheryl gathers unique treasures—recycled glass beads from a Florentine artist, hand-selected pieces from Viennese bead shops, natural stones, freshwater pearls—to include in her work. Using nature as her inspiration, Sheryl crafts beautiful pieces of jewelry reminiscent of the colors of the sunset, water flowing over rocks, the moon shining in the night sky, and many other natural phenomena.
On Friday, March 9th, from 5 to 8 pm, you can check out Sheryl’s work for yourself at the Lilybella Designs Trunk Show at Söntés. To get an idea of some of her work and some of the pieces that will be available at the show, scroll down for pictures. Hope to see you there!
