Welcome Peggy Petrey

My friend Deb who used to have a gallery in Denver wore this fabulous bracelet the last time I saw her. It was made by Peggy Petrey, so I had to track her down.

Peggy is a mixed media artist creating abstract wear from recycled liscense plates. Each piece is unique, no two pieces are alike. The finish on these pieces feels like silk!

Peggy was born in Detroit, Michigan and raised in Boca Raton, Florida. She began creating as a child using treasures she found when rummaging through a trash pile to create a work of art with.

These days she creatse jewelry and mixed media art from the yummy “life-stash” of treasures she's collected since those early years of childhood. Her intention is to use them all before she exits the earth!

Peggy studied at the Art Institute in Fort Lauderdale, worked as an Art Director for the University of Texas School of Business and ran her own design studio.

Learning some intimate details about our artists is a way for us to fall more and more in love with them and appreciate who and why they bring beauty to our world.

Now available at Carolina Creations!
