Pat Herkal


Pat creates to fill her life with joy, to discover how to mix colors and textures, to honor the environment and to keep her brain nimble.
Whimsy, color and the natural world inspire her work. Mixing fiber, thread, beads, trinkets, shells, stones and found objects – man made and natural – Pat creates jewelry, sculptures, wall hangings, critters and dolls. Most are hand sewn adding one bead at a time. The smaller the bead the better. Her work is often embellished with embroidery. She has fun making, so when people see her work, we hope it makes them smile.
