Andrea Ehret’s Jewelry Design, A Great Find!

21 Apr

Pennsylvania native and current Rhode Island local, Andrea Ehret will bring a necessarily unique component to the Garden City Center Art Festival on June 11, 2011! Her educational background and work experience in both illustration and toy design add to her credibility as an extremely talented and creative jewelry designer

Andrea has been far and beyond in her quest to gain essential knowledge of the art world. Her studies began at Ringling College of Art & Design in Saratosa, Florida, which eventually lead her to continue and expand upon her education on the opposite side of the country in Los Angeles at Otis College of Art & Design

While Andrea loves her day job as a toy designer for Littlest Pet Shop Brand of Hasboro Toys, she has adopted jewelry making as her creative outlet outside of work and she is really loving it!

Andrea’s jewelry is generally made of finds from flea markets, antique stores and consignment stores

She also uses upcycled items such as buttons, doilies, keys, beads, and game pieces, making sure no two pieces are the same.

Andrea loves escaping to Saratosa, Florida when she needs a good vacation or simply to Gracies Restaurant in Providence, Rhode Island to enjoy a good meal

For all you aspiring artists out there, Andrea says “craft what you love and make it fun!”
