Folk Art Double Vision
Karen Tweedie is a designer and metalsmith. Since childhood she has expressed herself through what she can create with her hands. As a teacher of the deaf, she literally talked with her hands for nearly 20 years. Her jewelry designs are often inspired by ancient iron and stone work she has seen in her extensive travels, but in this collection she takes her inspiration from the stories told in the paintings of visionary folk artist, Danny Doughty, his world filled with the simple essence of joyful life expressed through vivid colors.
