ABOUT KERRI

DSC03428.jpg

Kerri Shannon is an award winning local jewelry artist and lifelong Madison resident. Upon graduating from UW-Madison, Kerri worked as a Pediatric Occupational Therapist and became a mother of two. In 2003 she began her journey as an artist when she enrolled in metal fabrication courses at Madison College.

Kerri’s unique artistic style is modern and understated. She draws inspiration for her jewelry design by observing patterns in nature and in architecture. She creates pieces that explore the interplay of organic textures and contemporary lines. Her work is highly technical: specializing in expertly setting stones, and soldering and hammering metal to create shape, texture, and form.

Kerri’s jewelry is exhibited and sold at fine art galleries and art shows throughout Wisconsin, including Madison, Fitchburg, Stoughton, Milwaukee, Door County, and Minocqua.
