Christmas Blue Magpie – Artist Profile: Sally Boehme

Combined brooch and pendant comprising silk, glass beads, Swarovski crystals and handmade polymer clay cabochon.

Sally has been creating jewellery for 30 years using many materials; polymer clay, beads, lead crystals, pearls, semi-precious stones, threads, fabric and wire.  Often a unique piece – be it cabochon or bead – will set her off on a new creative journey. 

Sally’s influences are the lovely countryside that surrounds my home and she also loves oil painting as a hobby so she is often influenced by Renaissance art, the work of Gustav Klimt and Impressionism! 

Sally’s work encompasses creating my own beads and buttons as well as other items of jewellery extending the decorative elements to festive decorations for the home. 

Sally exhibits at venues in Oxfordshire, Herefordshire, Monmouthshire and Guernsey.  She also teaches her designs to adults at my home studio in Herefordshire and at venues around the country. Her work has been published in Bead, Beadwork, Bead & Jewellery, Vogue and WI Life magazines.

Sally will be at the market on Saturday & Sunday.
