Seed Bead and Enamel Jewelry

When seed-bead jeweler extraordinaire Kathleen Wenzel weaves tiny seed beads together, she transforms them into remarkable one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry. Her intricate designs combine various colors and items, including florals, snowflakes, shells, butterflies, and more, and they are quite often three-dimensional. Stunning woven chains hold unusually lovely pendants or woven elements. 

Her recent work incorporates natural stone cabochons in Mother Nature’s rich hues. Beautiful designs of seed beads encircle the stone for an elegant finish.

Kathleen’s charming collection includes earrings, necklaces, pins, and amulet bags. She creates her pieces to enhance any wardrobe and some may even be appreciated at Oregon sporting events. 

New forms emerge from stars, feathers, triangles, or other geometric designs.  Metals, crystals, stones, beads, or even leather make her work distinctive.  

Kathleen’s passion also includes the theater, where she actively supported CROW (Children’s Repertoire of Oregon Workshop.) As treasurer for the Last Resort Players, she is looking forward to the upcoming production of The Vagina Monologues.
