(Dale) Bernice Craft formerly from NYC, now calls Pike County home. Bernice (the name she prefers to be called) studied under NJ artist Gene Feller.
Around fifteen (15) years ago, Bernice’s interest shifted primarily to jewelry making. She uses a technique of wire weaving, soldering, fabricating and etching techniques.
Bernice has combined her love of nature and semi precious gemstones to create her unique, one-of-a-kind pieces. She calls the style “chaos wire wrapping” due to the random, but well thought out placement of the wires. She also makes beautiful “tree of life” pendants using a similar technique. You can learn her “craft” (pardon the pun!) by enrolling in her workshops held at The Art Gallery of White Mills.
Recently, Bernice has expanded her art to include pastel nature prints. Framed, colorful, beautiful and very reasonably priced!
Jewelry pieces (earrings, bracelets and pendants) begin at $20.00. Framed prints begin at $45.00. To view some of her prettiest pieces, visit The Art Factory of White Mills or catch her at local craft fairs!
