We sat down with Whimsical artist Beth Sykes Shaffer to learn more about her eclectic and original art.
How long have you been making your art?
I started making windchimes 10 years ago when I retired. Great grandad was a blacksmith – so I feel like I have metal in my veins! Love learning new skills at Sawtooth in WS! I make silverplate and enamel jewelry as well. Tried my hand at robots last year. I love to pick up everyday items and see them differently. If I live to be 200 – I won’t have time to learn everything I am interested in!
What do you love about Whimsical Women, or a favorite memory from a past show?
Last year was my 2nd WW. I am honored to be included in such an amazing group of WOMEN!!!
How can folks find your beautiful, unique pieces?
My work can currently be found at The Joyful Jewel in Pittsboro & Tiny Greenhouse here in Greensboro, NC. I am on Etsy, Instagram, & take custom orders, as well.
