We are dark in July, but Jayashree Paramesh will be our
August 19 speaker!
“My Approach to Design”
Jayashree Paramesh was introduced to the world of beads through a bead embroidery class she took while a student at Parsons, The New School for Design, in New York. She looks everywhere for inspiration and then creates from within. Her designs are more about her desire to bring out the unique beauty of the beads and the woman, rather than having a signature style. That being said, she is inspired by fine jewelry and loves to use some gold or silver in her pieces. Sparkly crystals and gemstones in jewel-tones are her favorites.
Jayashree’s designs have been published in Perlen Poesie, Beadwork, and Bead and Button. She has taught and continues to teach at various studios and stores across the USA, Bead and Button Shows, and bead guilds. It is a very gratifying experience for her to share her designs with fellow bead artists.
Jay’s talk for us will focus on her approach to design and how she comes up with her many unique pieces and shapes.
