About the Artist
Hi! I'm Sharilyn Miller,
and this page is where you can learn
a little bit more about myself.
I am a jewelry artist, writer and teacher who loves sharing
my passion for jewelry making with others.
I give grateful acknowledgement to
artist Lynne Merchant for teaching me
the basics of making creative jewelry with wire.
Prior to learning how to make wire jewelry in September 2001,
I had explored many other mixed-media artforms,
including collage, painting and other surface-design techniques on fabric,
handmade books, fiber arts, and beading.
But once I learned how to manipulate wire into fabulous jewelry pieces,
I was transformed forever!
I have also written 11 published books, including:
Arty Jewelry IV
Arty Jewelry III
Arty Jewelry II
Wire Art Jewelry Workshop
Arty Jewelry
100 Art-Jewelry Inspirations
Contemporary Copper Jewelry
Bead on a Wire
Rubber Stamped Jewelry
The Stamp Artist's Project Book
Stamp Art
Previous to my career in art,
I was a newspaper reporter with
The Orange County Register;
I have a B.A. in communications (print journalism)
from California State University, Fullerton.
I also have a degree in visual communications from
The Northwest College of Art in Poulsbo, Washington.
I have edited four magazines, including
Somerset Studio, Belle Armoire, Belle Armoire Jewelry, and Art Doll Quarterly.
I was the creator and launch editor for the last three titles.
In 2002, I began teaching art workshops part-time.
I taught jewelry making but also dabbled in a bit of mixed media
and fabric/fiber arts, including dyeing and painting fabric
and working with paints and fibers to create wearable art.
In February 2006, I left my magazine editing job,
moved to a mountain home in Idyllwild, California,
and began teaching and writing full-time.
Although books and instructional DVDs are valuable resources,
nothing beats a live workshop with an experienced teacher.
For this reason, I continue to share my passion for jewelry making
by teaching workshops in Southern California
and across the US. I have also taught in Montreal, Canada;
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico; Cortona, Italy; the Czech Republic;
Santorini, Greece; and in the South of France.
