Terry Calhoun

Terry Calhoun

Terry Calhoun was born in Phoenix, Arizona, spent time in Southern California and then migrated to Colorado in the early 70’s.  Always in the mountains, she has lived in Fraser, Evergreen, and Idaho Springs, then settled in Lawson, Colorado.  She has been making jewelry on and off since the 70’s but did not become seriously dedicated to jewelry making until the 90’s.

Terry lets the rocks and metals tell her what they want to be and never makes the same thing twice. She works with sterling silver, copper, bronze, and semi-precious stones.  Her technique is a combination of hammering, wire wrapping, and bead stringing.  Each piece is a wearable piece of art.

In addition to the River Canyon Gallery, her work can be found at the Colorado Mountain Art Gallery in Georgetown, Colorado, various shows in and around Jefferson County, Colorado, and on her website, www.thunderbirdcreations.com.
