BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA BEACH, FLORIDA – The Studios of Cocoa Beach, 165 Minuteman Causeway in downtown Cocoa Beach announces its September Artist of the Month, Beverly Morgan from Viera.
Her unique, handcrafted Jewelry is on display at this gallery which features the work of 20 local artists in a variety of mediums
Morgan has always been a creative person. Her journey began when she taught Home Economics to high school students including textiles, tailoring, and pattern design.
All that fabric got her interested in quilting and led her to own a quilt shop in Door County, Wisconsin. Designing inspired her to take semester-long courses in drawing and painting.
Having a collection of gemstones piqued an interest in jewelry so she studied silversmithing at the College of DuPage in Illinois and the William Holland School of Lapidary Arts in Georgia.
Here in Brevard, Morgan continues to learn via the Brevard Rock and Gem Club. Not limited to silver, she also works with copper and cold connections.
Her designs use stones, gems, copper, silver, whatever strikes her fancy as she explores a variety of materials and techniques.
“All of this was a way to enrich my life, creatively, emotionally and socially,” said Morgan.
One of her pieces, a pair of silk cocoon earrings will be the prize in the Studios ‘ monthly giveaway.
