Jeannie Trelles first began making jewelry in junior high school. What began as a hobby turned into a business in 2009, and Vikse Designs was born. Jeannie’s work is influenced by her love of travel, nature, and fashion. As her business has grown, so has her desire to learn new skills to further her ability to realize her creative vision. Since taking metalsmithing and lapidary classes, her work has developed from the beading and crocheted work she started out with. She enjoys using a variety of natural materials in her work, including semi-precious stones, sterling silver, gold, leather and feathers.
