A Charming Life

The charms offered on the Wynwoods Gallery and Studio website contain all the love, joy and enthusiasm of their designer, Lois Venarchick. ( me! )

An artist since childhood and educated in the fine arts of painting, drawing and printmaking, I still paint, knit, write and compose a universe of thought and love into little pieces of art to wear. I began designing charms in the early 1990's when after working on a big painting, I realized that I wanted to wear the images contained in the artwork. Images that spoke to me of love, life, family, hope, dreams, friendship and all that glitters and sparkles in the sunlight of our souls.

With the images from that long ago painting, I created my first series of charms and I still get my best inspiration from my drawings and paintings.

Thanks, Lois

We are located inside beautiful Victorian Square at 940 Water Street.
We are located in the beautiful James and Hastings Building, built in 1889 in Washington's victorian seaport town of Port Townsend. Surrounded by saltwater and the Olympic snow capped mountains, we bead in a place that is known as the "city of dreams." Come visit our shop in person and see our playground for yourself.

Beads and beads and...

     I have been beading since I was 9 and no, I am not giving my well earned age away, and have been designing and making charms for a lucky 13 years. With a background in fine arts; I still paint and co own a gallery in Port Townsend where I display my finished paintings. It is the charms that are a special love for me as I am a constant doodler and have books and pages of designs everywhere. Many of my images first appear in doodles, find their way into a painting or two and then become charms.
