About the Shop and it’s proprietress:
White Fox Bead Studio LLC is a bead shop created and owned by me, Gail DeLuca, a beadwork artist living in Knoxville, TN. I grew up in Chicago, IL where I went to college and earned a BA in art and then let that stew for a number of years before finding my medium in beads. Along the way life happened, and that took me to California, Texas, Virginia and Maryland until I arrived in East Tennessee in 1998.
The dream of a bead shop was realized on March 14, 2006 when I opened the doors to the Maryville store. The name White Fox came to me in a dream the very night I decided to make the plunge into becoming a small business owner.
Although I dabble in many jewelry making techniques, my favorites are seed bead weaving and metal clay. I hold certifications in both Art Clay and PMC, and am a founding member of the East Tennessee Chapter of the PMC Guild and a juried member of the Foothills Craft Guild. I am also a member of the Embroiderers’ Guild of America and the Knoxville Gem and Mineral Society (where I also teach at their week long summer workshops in GA and NC). I continue to take as many classes as my schedule permits, in the quest to bring new techniques to my customers.
