TracyJDesigns's Profile Picture

Tracy Partridge-Johnson
Artist | Professional | Artisan Crafts
United States
I am a self-taught pyrographer and handcrafted jewelry designer living in Beaverton, Oregon, USA. My areas of expertise are:

PYROGRAPHY - Burning portraits into leather or wood. I can do all shading with my burning tool or add color highlights (best done on wood) for complete photo reproduction. I am available for commission work. Feel free to contact me directly at my website. (www.portlandpyrography.com)

JEWELRY DESIGN - I specialize in one-of-a-kind, unique wearable pieces of art. My favorite materials are annealed steel wire to frame gorgeous, natural stones wrapped in other wires and featured in beautiful pendants or hand wire-wrapped into statement rings. I love warm, rustic, old-world metals such as copper and brass (frequently antiqued to give it an aged look) to compliment the annealed steel and stone. I create custom pieces and sets for those looking for their own, unusual look and feel.

LEATHER WORK - I sometimes work in leather...either creating artwork on it (pyrography on leather is SO much smoother than working on wood! The burning tool goes through it like it's melting through butter. Delicious!) and sometimes creating hand-tooled pieces such as book covers or wearable pieces such as bracers. I'm thinking about pursuing more book making endeavors in the future because it feels like I could encompass all of my crafts into that one medium; pyrography, jewel crafting, and leather tooling. We'll see how that goes!

Through A Window Darkly
This beautiful, One-Of-A-Kind, smoky Chalcedony stone reminds me of peeking through a dark, Gothic cathedral window. What is going on inside between the shadows and the light? The translucence of Chalcedony lends well to a sense of the mystical and mysterious. The stone was collected by a personal friend in the deserts of Arizona and is encased in a hand-formed frame made from hammered annealed steel wire that has been buffed to a soft sheen. Then it was wrapped in fine-gauge annealed steel wire to create a captivating sense of intrigue and wonder. It is both eye-catching to look at as well as offering a sense of comfort and peace when handled by the wearer. Approx. 2.5L x 1.25"W

ABOUT CHALCEDONY

Chalcedony is a cryptocrystalline form of silica, composed of very fine intergrowths of quartz and moganite. It has a waxy luster, and may be semitransparent or translucent and can assume a wide range of colors, but those most commonly seen are white to gray, grayish-blue or a shade of brown ranging from pale to nearly black.

Chalcedony is said to enhance: Emotional balance ♥ Vitality ♥ Stamina ♥ Endurance ♥ Energy ♥ Intensity ♥ Hardiness ♥ Nurturance ♥ Generosity ♥ Liveliness ♥ Kindness ♥ Charity ♥ Friendliness

It is (said to be) a nurturing stone that promotes sisterhood/brotherhood and good will. It absorbs negative energy and brings the mind, body, emotions, and spirit into harmony. This is a stone which instills feelings of benevolence and generosity. It alleviates hostility and transforms melancholy into joy. Eases self-doubt. Creates openness and enthusiasm. Absorbs and dissipates negative thoughts, emotions and bad dreams.

Chalcedony also (may) improve mineral assimilation and combat mineral buildup in the veins. It (may) reduce the effects of dementia and senility and increase physical energy. It has been said to help heal the eyes, gallbladder, bones, spleen, blood and circulatory system.

Fire and Steel
This One-Of-A-Kind woven ring features a 10mm Fire Agate dyed Amber. The shank of the ring is formed from 18 gauge annealed steel wire that has been hand-formed and buffed to a soft sheen. Then the shank was wrapped in woven fine-gauge copper wire for a contrast as well as comfort. This ring evokes a feeling of magic and wonder and will definitely stand out as an unusual and unique piece of wearable art.
Size 7.5

Amber Glass and Steel
This ring would look great on either a woman or a man's hand. Definitely a unisex kind of appeal. The shank is hand formed from 14 gauge annealed steel wire that has been cleaned, polished, and buffed to a soft sheen. It is then wrapped in woven 19 gauge annealed steel wire. The featured element is an amber glass bead. This ring has a bit of a Gothic or Steampunk feel to it and will definitely capture attention and comments when you are out and about! 
Size 6 ish but is adjustable.

**Can be recreated to size featuring red, purple or amber glass. Please contact me directly to make arrangements.

All Seaing Eye
This is a truly unusual ring! Wearable art on so many levels! The ring itself is formed from heavy gauge copper wire then wrapped with a lighter gauge copper wire to enclose and frame a gorgeous blue oval Paua Shell placed in the ring to resemble an "eye" with the wires suggesting lashes. The swirling shades of purple, green, and deep blue in the opalescent effect of the shell lend an air of mysticism and magic to the ring. The use of the sea shell inspired the name All "Sea"ing Eye ;) You are sure to get compliments and inquiries about this highly unusual ring. If you like things esoteric, occult, and mysterious, then this is the ring for you!
