Artisan: Nailed It
HI! My name is Shelly Burd and I am a New Jersey maker of nail and string art. A couple of years ago my cousin was getting married and I wanted to make a gift for the happy couple, something personal and heartfelt. I was browsing on my favorite app, Pinterest, and saw string art. I can’t remember what the picture was of, but I was instantly intrigued. With a little help from my father, I made my first piece of string art. It was of two love “Burds” and their chest formed a heart. I had an overwhelming response from my family that I should pursue this form of art. Over the last couple of years, if a friend or family member had a life event, I made string art.
My string art comes from the heart. I can customize pieces based on the personality, style, or interests of my clients. The pieces run the gamut of themes and celebrations from sports to weddings, man caves, nursery décor and everything in between.
My art is my hobby. I love to make nail and string art pieces that put a smile on the face of the recipient. I most enjoy working with clients to create a personalized piece for a special event in their lives.
The Crafts and Drafts at Lone Eagle Brewing, presented by Marketspace Vendor Events, is my first craft show. I would be interested in displaying my art at future events as interest demands. Come meet me in Flemington, New Jersey on March 31st - let's hammer out your ideas in string!
