Vicky Tennison

Hi, my name is Vicky Tennyson. I have been making jewelry for about 13 years. It all started when my friend, Shawn Wilson, asked me if I would like to help her make 80 pairs of earrings for a women’s retreat game. I said “SURE! but I have never made a piece of jewelry in my life.” And so it began.

I like to explore new techniques in my jewelry making. I am currently learning how to enamel and solder. As with many people who like to create, I can’t stop at one medium. Recently I have discovered book binding, making watercolor journals and felting covers for multi- purpose journals. I am also anxious to start on some mosaic projects I have had on my mind.


Making all natural body products is something I have been doing for many years. I will be introducing these products at Shaviq in the spring of 2021.

I am a Black Hills girl. I have lived in the area my entire life. You will find nature in most of my work. Sitting by a stream, hiking, camping or laying on the beach are all very inspirational. I love to travel and find it very inspiring as well.


Thank you for visiting Shaviq. We love what we do and love sharing it with you!
