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. She 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 widely published. She co-authored a book with friend and artisan, Heidi Kummli, titled “The Art of Bead Embroidery,” published by Kalmbach Publishing Co. and her work is featured in “Beading Across America” available from Kalmbach Books.
Sherry has also won numerous awards for her beaded artwork, including several BeadDreams contests, Jurors Merit Award 2006 Bead International, Best of Pennsylvania Artisans, and Kennedy Best Artist Nationally. Her one-of-a-kind designs have been worn by icon Steven Tyler, of Aerosmith, and are owned by professional golfer Michelle Wie, singer and songwriter Melissa Etheridge, and hip-hop lead singer Fergie, of the Black Eyed Peas.
