Featured Artist - Red Fox Jewelry


I am honored to be a featured artist this week, however, since I have missed getting posts done for other artists I felt it was only fair to spend this week catching up and giving them their due time in the spotlight.

Red Fox Jewelry is based in Arlington, TX. Mother of 3 grown children, grandmother to 5 (soon 6 if I read correctly) she previously worked as a tractor operator until injury stopped her cold. Now a fan of chainmaille and wire working she creates beautiful pieces that showcase a variety of styles and talents. Upon reading her blog I learned she too is in limbo about whether or not to upgrade her artfire account, although I give her props because mine still isn't complete enough to post items. To really get a feel for her works you should visit her etsy store, because it's my belief that's where all the magic happens right now... She has a singature style of wire wrapping that she calls arrowheads, however, this doesn't begin to define her jewelry as a whole. Stop by and peruse her shops, follow her on twitter and give her the attention her work deserves.
