In late 2000 Jeannie Myers left her executive suite job in the San Francisco Bay Area and, with her broad experience and skills, established Genie With Design, a graphic design and administrative support business. After moving to the serene foothills of Northern California, her interests evolved in a more creative direction so she expanded her offerings to include hand-crafted jewelry and clay sculpture. Jeannie brings her artistry, imagination, and precision to each arena, so you can always count on top quality.
Jeannie has explored a multitude of art forms since her earliest childhood years in rural Wisconsin. Starting from those first pencil sketches of figures, faces, and local pastoral scenes, to pastels and oils; from wheel-thrown pots and hand-built sculpture; from graphic arts and website design to hand-crafted jewelry items, her artistry has continued to evolve.
As a jewelry designer, Jeannie Myers draws on her inborn, well-honed artistic talent and her meticulous approach to bring you creations that personally complement you, the wearer. Designing pieces from her always-growing collection of unique pendants and beads, with user-friendly clasps, Jeannie aims to satisfy your personal jewelry desires with beautiful, artful, unique, and comfortable-to-wear creations.
As a sculptor, Jeannie works with a variety of high-fire clays, building mostly human-related forms – experimenting, inventing, testing the limits of her media. Her inspiration is drawn from the fertile ground of “real life,” those people living their agonies and ecstasies, challenges, and achievements. Great artists with a particular influence over the years are Auguste Rodin, Beniamino Bufano, and Norman Rockwell. Jeannie’s sculptures express a sensitivity and strength in their execution, as seen in the evocative “Worn Out,” the heart-wrenching “Linda Agony,” the pensive “Muffy,” the tender “Emoting Figure #1,” and the moving “Wounded.” Her work has been described as possessing an identifiable and unique “hallmark.”
Jeannie has displayed her sculpture in shows and exhibits in the San Francisco Bay Area and in Northern California. She sells her jewelry on this website, at local craft shows, and on Facebook.
