CRAFTS CLOSEUP • Sandy Christey

Gallery at Marina Square Presents a “Close Up” of

Sandy Christey

Sandy Christey
Sandy Christey designs jewelry and paints on silk.  Sandy enjoys putting vibrant colors together. Sandy says that art is also a meditation for her. She incorporates gems and pendants from around the world in her jewelry, to visualize world peace. She calls it “Healing Art Jewelry.” Semi-precious stones are thought to have healing properties and as she is an RN, that’s a concept that truly resonates with her.

Sandy also loves painting on silk. The silk is stretched on a frame and provides a surface for the vibrant colors to be absorbed. Since she is inspired by nature, Sandy includes flowers in most of her scarves, purses, and glasses cases.
