Klew’s Art ~
    Beginning with a technique referred to as “caning” which was borrowed from the Venetian Glass bead makers. A cane is a bundle of colors puzzled together creating a picture when viewed from its cross section. Klew created this style of veneer bead making utilizing a select family of slices off as many as a dozen canes then applies as a veneer over a core while assembling the surface collage for each unique Art bead. Each piece is handcrafted by Klew.

Klew lives with her husband, Carl and a menagerie of feline and canine fur kids in Tehachapi, CA. They run their business together The Spirited Bead & Klew’s Gallery, where Klew is more than happy to give a tour of her studio on the premises called; “Raising Cane” and perhaps a quick demo when time allows.
