Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

ArtWorx Events was founded in October of 2013. I heard about the “paint and sip” concept years before that and was intrigued because it combined all of my schooling and prior work experience. I have a BA in Marketing, MA in Art Education, Gemologist degree, & Art Teacher and Principal certifications. This business combined everything I love and allowed me to have a business where I could hold art parties where people can get creative and enjoy themselves for any type of occasion. I teach guests step-by-step how to create a masterpiece from scratch on canvas, glass, or anything else. Guests can choose to have cocktails, wine and snacks while they have fun painting!

Meet a Wedding Jeweler in Athens, GA: Beth Cyr (4)

Today we have a lovely interview to share with jewelry designer Beth Cyr, based in Athens, Georgia! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

I started my business about 12 years ago and have been a full time working artist for a little more than a decade. I grew up playing in the woods and by the pond in our front yard. We would sleep out in our backyard and stare at the night sky until we fell asleep. Much of my childhood art was inspired by these elements, as are many of my current designs. I believe our natural resources should be protected and preserved so all the little girls and boys in future generations can play in natural forests and clean water and be able to enjoy the stars at night.

My partner, Alex, just recently quit his job to start working with me. We’re consciously looking to grow the business in a sustainable way.  In both our personal lives, as well as our business, we strive to have as minimal environmental impact as possible. From using recycled packaging material to 100% recycled metals, to composting and growing a lot of our food – we do what we can to leave a light footprint on the planet. We also support larger organizations that are working to have a larger impact, such as replanting forests or cleaning up the Great Lakes.
