Profile picture of Candace Beardslee

For the past 30 years I’ve been making vessels and jewelry that reflect my life in the Pacific Northwest. Drawing inspiration from the local flora and fauna is the thread that connects my work. I hope to keep alive the story telling and traditions that are rooted in craft.
