Welcome to the newest community for inspiration and memory making! The Jewels of Kingwood are artists and crafters who love making meaning through art and celebrating the jewels in our lives that create lasting memories. Check out everything we have to offer on our pages and throughout our blog entries.
Who are The Jewels of Kingwood…
The jewels consist of a Creative Team, Featured Artists, and Guest Bloggers who will share great ideas, finished product for sale, tips and techniques that you can use to make your own creations, and links to lots of goodies each week. Though we have been doing business as crafters and teachers for over 20 years, we knew it was important to take a leap of faith and jump out of our box, and join with others to make more art by coloring outside the lines.
So… here we are in a newly created community that will be developing new ideas, sharing the old, celebrating jewels and nuggets of knowledge, and helping each of us create lasting memories.
The Creative Team…
3 generations of artists- mother, daughter and granddaughter- are the jewelry designers who create unique, one-of-kind pieces of jewelry. They have 50+ years of experience between them with the mother and daughter being certified to teach art in the public schools. Now retired, they focus on making memorable wearable art with a variety of jewels and mixed media.
Our Storyteller- the Wise Owl- creates a variety of original greeting cards, gift tags, wall art, home decor plaques and other memorable accessories for those special moments. Helping make memories for others is her focus; she takes the jewels in your life and turns them into lasting keepsakes. If you have a special life moment to celebrate or need a custom order of invitations, she is wise in her design aesthetics and works closely with her clients to meet their needs.
Sharing Our Stash ~ Supplies & Techniques…
Our Supply Depot is the place on our site to find lots of goodies- supplies for jewelry making, crafting, art, and whatever we find that we think someone might find useful. The Depot is always changing as we get more supplies or deplete our stash. Be sure to check the Depot often if you are looking for hard-to-find items, newly released goodies, or just something interesting for that special project you are working on.

We will feature short tutorials on techniques, short clips on design software, product reviews, and provide links to where you can find more info for just about anything related to making art. If you have something you want to learn, need help with a piece of equipment or tool, or just want to see what’s new for your creative explorations, then Teachable Moments is where to look. Feel free to ask questions and suggest what Teachable Moments you would like to see us cover.
