Artist Co-op in Salmon, Idaho

Ruth Ruscilli

Ruth was born in Idaho and made her home in Salmon. She has had her own hair salon, working with her hands for many years now. This had led her to open up to her creative side. “I dabble in oil painting, metal, clay and other art forms but my real love is wire wrap jewelry. It excites me to take a few wires and a stone and create a work of art.”

Her wire wrap jewelry is inspired by all the natural beauty that she is so grateful to be surrounded by in this beautiful Salmon River valley. She hand selects precious and semi-precious stones, each stone influences her in its design. She uses sterling silver or 14k G.F. wire. “Loving what I do, I hope is felt by those who wear it.”
