The tranquility in my garden is an abundant source of repose & personal inspiration. The vivid colors, textures & designs found among the flowers continually inspire me. Their beauty, elegance & fragrance is a delight to the senses and soothing to my soul. "From inspiration flows. . . . the desire to create."
Biography: Welcome to 3Fine Design®. My name is Tracy Behrends & I'm an independent jewelry artist & designer located in Minneapolis, MN (USA). For several of my designs I use a handstitched bead weaving technique called embellished right angle weave (RAW). I particularly enjoy the intricacy & challenges associated with tiny seed beads, needles & various beading threads. It's a time consuming process with an abundance of love & personal gratification woven into every jewelry piece I create. In addition, a few of my other passions include designing beaded cabochons (using bead weaving & bead embroidery techniques), creating wire sculpture pendants & hand carving leather. It's my fascination with detail & the beauty of the finished product that make the stitching, wrapping & tooling process particularly captivating. I consider each & every new design an exciting adventure. My past experience & love for graphic arts significantly influence my jewelry designs. My affinity for symmetry, texture, geometric shapes, bright colors, simplicity & rhythmic patterns is readily apparent in the pieces that I create. For me, it's not only the completed product that brings a sense of joy & personal satisfaction but the entire creative process. From concept to the finishing touches, each journey compels me to stretch & grow. It's within the maturation experience & the challenges along the way that I find artistic fulfillment.
