In addition to being a close friend and popular instructor here at Blue Door Beads, Iris Sandkühler is also an incredibly talented jewelry artist, and we are excited to feature her work for sale here at the shop on Thursday, April 16th, during Third Thursday’s Piedmont Avenue Stroll!

Iris Sandkühler incorporates her German lineage of storytelling into her jewelry practice. Each piece she creates is one of a kind and 90% handmade from scratch. Working with fine silver, sterling, copper, and some brass, she often uses glass, beads, and gemstones as design elements. In particular, Iris loves creating handmade chain for its meditative process. She works and teaches from the foundation of using a few portable and simple tools to create and design unique pieces.

Come on by the shop and meet Iris on Thursday, April 16th from 6-9pm! She will have over 400 pieces available for show and sale, and will be doing a demo as well!
