Kirsten Logerquist has a very artistic mind and wanted to be exposed to a creative environment, so she left the service industry of Door County and joined the art community in Ellison Bay.
Logerquist creates youthful jewelry with an eclectic combination of contemporary, tribal and feminine flare. She uses natural stones, various beads and often recycles old jewelry. Natural stones and other organic findings used in Logerquist’s jewelry reflects the natural beauty of the environment she lives in. There is a trace of earth tones and nature elements, like dragonflies, skulls, shells or petrified wood.
Petrified wood is the result of a tree or tree-like plants having completely transitioned to stone by the process of permineralization. Unlike other types of fossils, which are typically impressions or compressions, petrified wood is a three-dimensional representation of the original organic material.
Visit Turtle Ridge Gallery-Boutique, located at 11736 Mink River Road in Ellison Bay, to see a display of Logerquist’s jewelry. A meet and greet with Logerquist is scheduled for Oct. 14, 10 am – 5 pm.
