2020 Artist: Shana Rainy
Every year we have so many jewelry artists apply to the festival that we actually have to cap the category. Not everyone makes it in, but Shana Rainy of Winged Goddess Studio-Shana Rainey in Boone did, for two years now. "I want my jewelry pieces to make my customers as happy wearing them as it makes me to create them. My jewelry is a mix of soldered pieces added to copper & brass; painted metal & leather to create contrast & color; dyed resin to create the look of stained glass; wood and lace to add an earthy feel."
