Hi! My name is Tracy Kingery, and I have been designing and making jewelry for 15+ years. There is something about texture, color, and shape, the patterns and the possibilities, that continue to bring me back to the work table, even when I think I have run out of ways to create beauty, something that tells me that there’s more where all the others came from, and that my hands are the ones to bring those designs to life. To bring delight and colorful usefulness into the world, with jewelry and accessories that make our days lighter, easier, with beaded beauty. To help others share the joy of generosity and gifting of handmade treasures with those they love. To bring back vital and juicy energy to the day to day tasks we give ourselves every day. I don’t know exactly what that something is, but I love being part of it. It makes my life juicy too!
I am also a Beadstar! I won Second Place, Glass Category, from BeadStar Magazine in 2010, with this piece:
In Summer of 2016, I published this bracelet in Stringing Magazine:
It had always been my dream to get published in that magazine - It started right around the same time I began beading, it was an endless source of inspiration, and I was thrilled to get to be part of it!
I have so many design ideas still to be made and shared! Keep checking back to see what treasures I come up with! Please feel free to contact me with questions or ideas - I love to talk about jewelry!
