ARTIST STATEMENT

Karmen Schmidt of Sophea Designs has been beading for two decades. Her work has appeared in Bead and Button magazine. She is past president of Portland Bead Society. Her work has won or placed in many local and regional bead competitions and has been sold at local and regional art shows. Pieces are hand-crafted using beading stitches and stringing.

Artistic work is process of self-discovery wherein one reconciles a mental image with what is physically doable. Beadwork is a highly evolved art form necessitating the same struggles as painting or sculpture: ratio, color, texture, depth, balance, and symmetry blend together to please both artist and viewer. Nature supplies the canvas for my work and I aim not to make the same piece twice. This approach forces me to continually create new work, providing my clients with unique, high-quality jewelry suited just for them.
