Regina Ewer didn’t always see herself as an artist and actually planned to go to school for business. But a chance connection with another jewelry maker led to a five year apprenticeship. When that business went under, she decided to learn how to run her own jewelry making business.
She derives inspiration for new designs while out hiking in wooded areas near her home and finds all kinds of leaded crystal and glass in a nearby creek. Pieces of Coke bottles and green wine bottles are favorite finds on these trips.
Regina loves hearing customers talk about their design ideas. She thinks her best work evolves from these conversations. At Sugarloaf Craft Festivals she will have a stash of unused precious and semi-precious stones for customers to pore over and incorporate into custom work. No idea is too unusual. She loves to explore uncharted territory.
