Born in Saskatchewan, Canada, jewelry artist Shirley Price's artistic life path has taken many turns. Starting with knitting and selling baby booties, caps, sewing some of her own clothes at the age of 10, she has explored pottery, weaving, leather work, leaded glass and watercolors. Shirley recalls her mother saying, "Art is a story worth telling." Shirley found her heart's story when she discovered precious metal work. Studying fabrication in California at the Irvine Fine Arts Center and the Revere Goldsmith School in San Francisco allowed her to hone her art. She continues to take classes of interest in and around her studio.
Drawn to the quiet balance of the Asian culture and inspired by beautiful colored stones gathered on trips around the world, Shirley creates her unique pieces "to reflect a woman's innate individuality, beauty and mystery." Shirley's collections sell in galleries and museum shops across the United States and Canada, including Absolute Gallery. She has won numerous awards for her art.
The featured necklace is composed of Beautiful chrysocolla with wonderful matrix is set in fine silver bezels & backs. Sterling silver makes up the frame and the single pearl is the artist's signature/trademark.

I had a request to put some long charm necklaces on Etsy, so here you go. The porcelain doll arms have crazes (tiny cracks) that look like veins 🖤🖤. The carved bead is Victorian. #wearthepast#spookyallyearlong
I’m loving this #OceanJasper necklace! These beads are so pretty and I’m obviously digging the #HiddenMickey in the one bead 😍 I’ve been working on new necklaces all week and will have almost 40 to post next week! Woohoo!
Making beads on diamonds. Four on each. It's very tedious, but when it's done it will be so worth it. I hope. It will be. It better be. I'm pretty sure it will. Be worth it. Right? I think so. No, it will for sure! I hope. Is it done yet? 🤤🤷♂️💎💎💎💎💎😊
An artist sometimes needs a break from social media. It means good things are coming. The oil painting is one of my grandpa’s that he never deemed good enough. The brass butterfly is the first thing I made in Metals 101, the candle #capribluevolcano of course and the clip board is from @cowgirlkris .
