2013 Contest Winner: Buttons
BY CATHY CEDERLIND, BENTARA CREATIONS, GOLD RIVER, CA
Cathy Cederlind is a Northern California Bead Artist located in the Sacramento area. Cathy specializes in jewelry designs utilizing off-loom beading techniques and bead embroidery. Having an extensive background in art, Cathy’s jewelry designs are a constant undertaking of color theory; in fact, color design is the most challenging and rewarding part of her designs. Second to color theory, buttons play a key role in Cathy’s work.
As an avid button collector, Cathy is constantly searching for unusual and interesting buttons to use as center pieces in her work. She often incorporates vintage and contemporary Czech buttons into her work.
You can find Cathy’s jewelry at the Artists Collaborative Gallery located in Sacramento, California. Here you will find her beaded jewelry as well as her line of Steampunk designs. Cathy welcomes custom orders. Visit Cathy’s blog at cathycederlind.blogspot.com to view her designs.
