Welcome to Paula Beckett Designs
I specialize in designing fine jewelry with an emphasis on the beauty found in nature. Most pieces in my collection are one of a kind. All my jewelry is designed to bring the wearer closer to nature and to bring out the beauty and femininity they feel within themselves.
Teaching is My Passion
I began my teaching career at Brookhaven College in Dallas, TX and Collin College in Plano TX. Today I teach out of my Plano,TX based studio. I am happy to teach all skill levels.
I find the best way to learn to design jewelry is begining with metal clay. It offers tremendous flexibility, a wide range of creative options, and is fairly inexpensive. It is a great medium.
I also offer more advanced classes in Cloisonné enameling. I not only focus on technique but teaching my students on how to find their artistic voice. Many of my students have become long-time students by progressing through each level, mastering each. Some of my recent work is shown below.
