When she was young, Charise Bundeson’s favorite after school activity was watching Carol (the Queen of Crafts) Duvall’s television show and attempting to duplicate her projects.
She worked for General Motors for many years. In 1990, she accepted a buyout offer and started her new life as a full time artist. She worked from home while raising her children, often taking them on the road with her to shows.
Charise makes funky, playful jewelry accessories using miscellaneous found objects such as buttons, tubing, puzzle pieces and marbles. She enjoys visiting family and friends and discovering new places while traveling to shows.
