Sherry Serafini is a beadwork artist who has been creating beaded body adornment since 1997. Unusual objects and shapes become part of a new story as Sherry stitches beads and gemstones to a felt like base. Sherry finds this meditative form of art to be a rich counterpoint to a society full of instant gratification. Sherry lectures and teaches throughout the U.S. and her work has been published widely. Sherry has also won numerous awards for her beaded artwork including People’s Choice Bead Dreams 2006, Jurors Merit Award 2006 Bead International, Best of Pennsylvania Artisans and Kennedy Best Artist Nationally.
Sherry’s one of a kind designs have been worn by icon Steven Tyler of Aerosmith and are owned by by pro golfer Michelle Wie, Melissa Etheridge and hip hop lead singer Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas.
Sherry has written several books including “The Art of Bead Embroidery”, Sensational Bead Embroidery, Beading Across America and is featured in Masters: Beadweaving published by Lark.
