Cheryl Geerdes, mixed media

Cheryl’s creative journey began at a young age when her grandmother taught her to knit.

Over the years, Cheryl has enjoyed exploring a variety of mediums in the world of crafts, including dried flower wreaths, stained and lead cane glass, interior wall stenciling, fabric arts and rug making.

Attending jewelry design classes at the Manchester School of Art opened the door to her primary craft pursuit here at Valley Artisans. Throughout the shop, you’ll find her unique designs in the form of earrings, bracelets and necklaces. 

Making jewelry is not only relaxing but a lot of fun for Cheryl. She is continually on the look out for interesting and unusual beads, as well as vintage jewelry to incorporate into one-of-a kind pieces.

Cheryl is a long-time member of Valley Artisans and now splits her time between her home in New Hampshire and Florida.
