Yaquina Art Gallery, Newport, OR. September 19, 2017
Michaeline McDonald will be shaping unique wire wrapped jewelry in a two week artisan spotlight show in Newport, Oregon from September 24th to October 7th. The gallery is open from 11-4 pm daily at the Yaquina Art Association Gallery.
Michaeline is a local artist residing in Depoe Bay. Her wire wrapped beach glass seahorses were inspired by seahorses of course and the magic of the ocean. She has been gathering beach glass along the beautiful Oregon beaches for about ten years. She uses the pretty pieces of glass to make these seahorse pendants.Each seahorse is unique, no two are the same. She meticulously hand wraps each one and adds glass beads, semi-precious stones, crystals, and a little hand drilled shell for the fin. You can see more of her seahorses at www.wisetailsart.com and can purchase this little âAdmiral Blueâ seahorse pendant at the Yaquina Art Gallery in Newport, Oregon.

Beach glass is at the heart of the latest Artisan Spotlight show at Newportâs Yaquina Art Association Gallery, featuring work from Depoe Bay artist Michaeline McDonald.
For 10 years, McDonald has been collecting the smooth fragments of beach glass that serve as the foundation for her range of wire-wrapped seahorses.
She creates each unique piece by meticulously hand wrapping a piece of glass in wire before adding beads, semi-precious stones, crystals and a little hand-drilled shell for the fin.
More examples of her work are available at www.wisetailsart.com.
The two-week artisan spotlight show will run through Sept. 23 at 789 NW Beach Drive, available to view from 11 am to 4 pm daily.
