We all learned bead stringing in kindergarten using macaroni and yarn. At about the same time I discovered rocks. Just sitting in the dirt searching for the “pretty ones” no driveway or gravel pile was safe from pilfer-age.

Still searching for the prettiest rocks, today I travel the world via trade shows and the internet searching for quality gemstones, semi-precious gemstones, pearls, crystal, artisan glass and metals. At the very heart of beautiful jewelry are these beautiful gifts from nature.

Once selected, characteristics of the heart or focal piece guide the design. Unique designs come from new pairings and combinations in colors, proportion, texture, balance, and scale. The design’s practical considera-tions are wearability, construction and camouflage.

But my first necklace some 40 years ago wasn’t a circle at all. I had not yet learned to close the circle with a clasp. I started stringing and hand knotting pearls with no real objective except keeping my hands busy. Sixteen feet later I had a new hobby and an open- ended lariat. I still love it!

Moving from hobby to business is the result of being “discovered” by Artworks owner Talis Jayme. The quirky little gallery and its very talented artists always have something there to make you smile. Because of Talis my pretty rocks, pearls and I are happily at home.

ARTIST: Tony Krysinsky

Tony Krysinsky is originally from New York, raised on Long Island where he began drawing and painting as a child, and never stopped. Drawn to the coast, even as a youngster, He started surfing at 13 and by the age of 18 those New York winters were too long and too cold. Florida has been his home ever since. Tony did his undergraduate work in Florida where he received his BA in fine arts and then moved to New Orleans where he got his MFA from Tulane University. The sights and sounds of the "Big Easy" would become a lasting influence in his work. Music in general has definitely been a big part of his life. Playing and singing in R&R and R&B bands while he still continued to work on his visual art. These days Tony makes his home, his art and his music in Perdido, on Florida's Gulf coast. Where he still finds time to surf and stand-up paddle board with his family. Stop by to see Tony's original works of art at Artworks Studio & Gallery at your earliest convenience.
