Welcome to the QuadCities.com Virtual Art Gallery!

In this feature, we’re spotlighting area artists and their work. Every Tuesday we’ll feature a new local artist.

It’s free and our way of showcasing awesome area artists and allowing them to include a link to their own online gallery or patreon!

If you’d like to be included in the gallery, just send your bio, a headshot pic of yourself and up to a half-dozen .jpgs of your art to Sean@QuadCities.com. We look forward to featuring you and your artworks in our gallery!

This week’s artist is Brianna Herrig!

As she tells us in her bio…

Brianna Herrig

I am a miniature artist and jewelry designer in the Midwest!

I am the owner of Knot N’ Clay Creations which consists of Clay and Crochet Earrings!

I am married to my handsome husband Reid Herrig and we have a 3 year old Golden Retriever named Mylo and a rescue puppy German Shepherd Coonhound mix.

Creating and making people happy is a gift I learned from my grandma. I started crocheting about three years ago and clay making is fairly new to my realm of crafting. I was watching TikTok during quarantine one day and saw someone making clay earrings and it struck a nerve that I wanted to follow! As of July 2020, I now own a small business! I now have dreams about making clay earrings and I absolutely love how creating makes me feel.

My biggest takeaway from jewelry and why I do what I do is that I want people to feel good about themselves. If I can provide a service that makes someone smile when they receive their purchase, I have done my job. I believe that if you are happy doing what you do, it will show through your work.

I have a shop that I am going to post on social media in the next couple of weeks! Right now I am posting earrings on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and TikTok.

To find me in any of those platforms @knotnclaycreations is my username!

And here are some of her creations:
