CHER SCHMIDT, Jewelry, Blue Moose Art Gallery

Cher is new to the world of artists. The working phase of her life, with roles of wife, mother, and student was quite consuming and left little time to explore any artistic endeavors. Although she didn't consider herself creatively talented at that time, she did love cooking and felt that was her creative outlet. Since she retired about five years ago, she wasted no time discovering her fun, creative side. She found her passion in fused glass and jewelry. She defines it in a motto: “A touch of glass – where creativity and joy merge.” A whole new world has opened up for Cher, the life of a creative artist.
