About Chantal Griffis

A growing love of textile arts was the motivation for education and training as a working couture master seamstress.  As beading became a focus for my artistic expression, woven jewelry became my muse – an art form where techniques of sewing and the artistry of crystal beading are beautifully united with pattern and design.

As an artist, my hope is that those who view my work will be inspired by the beauty of the crystals, the interplay of light and the shapes – that they will see within these patterns of this jewelry an interpretation of the beauty I see in the world around me.

In 2006, while I living in Massachusetts, I opened my own business. I relocated to the Puget Sound region in 2009. My work was recognized in publications. I continue the legacy and significance of beads and use this treasured medium to reinforce their value and purpose in modern society.
