Klew’s Art ~
Created using a technique referred to as “caning” which was borrowed from the Venetian Glass bead makers. A cane is a bundle of colors pieced together to create a picture when viewed from the cross section. Klew has her own style utilizing a select family of slices as a veneer as she assembles her surface collage for each unique Art piece. Each piece is handcrafted by Klew.

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.
