It’s important to me that you know about L V Design. I’d love to chat with you. Local events and shows are my lifeline to the community. Yakima Valley has so much to offer and local talent is everywhere. Check back as I will add more to my schedule as time goes by…
Due to COVID-19 many events have been canceled and galleries are closed or have limited hours. Below are the events you can usually find me and hope to see you again soon.
|~ Yakima Events ~|
|Tryst is mid-February – New for the Larson Gallery Guild during the Red Wine and Chocolate weekend in Yakima, jewelry collectors can delight in handmade pieces from regional artists.|
|Second Saturday in June – Chalet Place June Art Fest – New designs, new sterling, new copper, new combinations! Also look for me and my son-in-law, Dennis’ wonderful wood designs at this annual Springtime event each year.|
|Labor Day Saturday at Wilridge Winery – Celebrate Artists in the Vineyard, art and wine together at Wilridge Winery, 250 Ehler Rd, Yakima (Naches Heights).|
|You may find me again at the Annual Mighty Tieton Holiday Bazaar or call me for a different holiday location with even more new designs! It’s only a one day show, no matter what. But can also find my pieces at Oak Hollow Custom Frames & Gallery this Holiday Season or any time.|
The 1960’s found me a traditional wife and mother. The 1970’s found me as a young widow completing college. After college, I continued within the education field for 25 years teaching Health classes in Yakima, Washington’s schools, 7th, 9th, and 12th grades.
Throughout these years my creativity has found many expressions. From kids clothes to home and garden design, and now as wearable art. I have always used a thoughtful, functional, resourceful approach in all my endeavors and now I can share that with you.
My pieces have received many awards and are in collections all over the northwest. So at last, I proudly call myself a full time artist.
You are interested in art, having a unique kind jewelry, or both. You value quality and unique pieces. Whether dressing casually or for an important event, accessories are important to you. So whether a piece is for you or as gift, you’ll see that many people benefit with L V Design.
About My Designs…
All my pieces are hand crafted and are from “scratch.” They start with sheets and wire of silver. My workmanship is always secure. All components are soldered and components always sterling silver. Or I’ll let you know if other metal is used in a particular design.
