THE WORK OF MY HEART AND HANDS:
creations from the studio
on Rocking Chair Mountain
beadwork, dolls, book arts, folk art sculptures, miniatures, paintings and other whimsies by Ruth Rocchio
Below is the logo for the reincarnation of my jewelry business, coming soon on a sister website. Check back for launch date!
On this website you will find things I created from 1991 until the present. Something is always under construction in my cozy studio, be it a fiber project, beading or pages in my visual journal. The cats are often busy reorganizing or sleeping on my materials, but I am convinced their input only improves the final outcome.
In the studio I am surrounded by items that inspire and engage my creativity. Like all good crows, I have hoarded alot of very shiny things - glass beads of many sizes and types, gemstone strands, crystals and single stones, fabrics, yarns, threads, paints, clay, wood...well, you get the picture. As a mixed media artist, I let the idea and the feeling guide my inquiry and go from there.
The offerings shown in the following gallery pages are varied and eclectic - a reflection of the restlessness and inner wanderlust of my creative spirit. I hope you enjoy my work.
