Sierra Sonoma from United States
is the artisan in the spotlight this week
In her studio set amidst the rolling hills and endless stretches of green vines in Sonoma Valley, long considered California's premier wine country, artist Cheryl Sirkus creates the pieces for her Sierra Sonoma jewelry line. Her pieces shine like reflections of the inspiration she gathers from the natural, subtle beauty of the region.
"This is truly an inspirational place to live and design," Cheryl says. Starting by sketching out ideas, she mindfully creates pieces to capture elegance and femininity in understated tones, selecting semi-precious stones and pearls to enhance the effect. "Simplicity and subtle designs are really my forte. I think the design and color should speak for itself."
