Meet the Artists

Shellie Bender

Shellie Bender is best known for her award winning “WEARable SCULPTURE” described as being "between jewelry and architecture." In her career, she has utilized many materials including gold and silver, wood, natural stone, pearls and rubber. Her current line of jewelry incorporates luscious, vibrant rubber with sterling silver and magnetic closures, all designed by her.


Shellie’s conceptual focus is on the interaction between contrasting materials and the fluid movements of the wearer while engaging with her bracelets, necklaces, earrings, and rings. Her pieces are worn by collectors nationwide while her presence in Lawrence KS is best known for her dedication to Art Education and her sculpture “Mobility” located outside the Historic Union Pacific Depot.

 

Large scale stainless steel sculptural works for interior and exterior spaces are available by commission.
