Wendy and Skylar Ron
One of the artists, Wendy Oellers-Fulmer is an award-winning teacher for her work in the arts and environmental education. Seven years ago, she discovered the joy found in making beautiful and unique pieces of jewelry. She left Public School teaching in 2011 to pursue the art of jewelry making. Her designs are inspired by the “stories” found in unusual focal beads, semi-precious gemstones, and vintage jewelry pieces. Creating hand-stitched pieces is also a love of hers. She lives Gilford, New Hampshire with her husband (designer, silversmith, business partner and best friend) Ron and two Golden Retrievers. In addition to jewelry making, her free time favorites are: gardening, nature journaling, bird-watching and hiking with Ron, photography, painting with watercolors, reading, and spending time with her beloved grandaughters Maya and Zoe. A year ago Ron has discovered the magic of silversmithing. A life-time "Rock Hound", he delights in showcasing his "finds' in unique sterling silver pendants. Summers are spent six hours north on pristine East Grand Lake in Danforth, Maine. Loons, eagles and moose are a few of the neighbors they treasure and have inspired the Northern Woods Sterling Bangles series.
