One-of-a-kind, nature-themed art jewelry. My items include hand-woven beadwork and handmade accents using silver, bronze, copper, and some gold. Semi-precious stones, Czech glass, and unusual vintage items are often incorporated into my designs.I am willing to do consignment and limited repair work.
Eightmoons Creations began as a personal dedication to my creative drive. My name is Judi Talley, and I am the artist. I am a member of the Foothills Craft Guild, Tennessee Craft, and the Embroiderers' Guild of America. My pieces carry my initials whenever practical, so don't be surprised see "jt" on a piece of my work.
I am a native Knoxvillian and grew up in the foothills and river valleys of East Tennessee. Nature has always calmed and centered me. Throughout my life I have attempted to capture the essence of the natural world in many different media: paint, ink, beads, carving. My inspiration is deeply rooted in the wild beauty of this region, and my driving passion is to translate ephemeral moments of natures beauty into tangible and enduring works of art. Pieces may include hand-carved forms, worked metal, gemstones, sea shells, crystals, pebbles, gold, or hand-colored drawings. Natural forms and earth-tones are prevalent. Silver and bronze are my preferred media, though bead weaving will be found here, too.
