Right Brain: Denise Bloch

Summit Daily/Kristin SkvorcJewelry maker Denise Bloch looks through beads Wednesday at her shop in Breckenridge.

Denise Bloch doesn’t let the hard knocks of life get her down. She’s a mom and a breast cancer survivor who takes an optimistic view of life, saying she’s eternally blessed to be alive. She creates jewelry with colored glass, allowing women to live more colorful lives. She sells her art at Denise Bloch Jewelry at 156 County Road 450, Building A Unit 9, in Breckenridge. DreamsI feel my art is more of a craft. I’d like to paint one day and maybe, if I’m really brave, I’d like to write a novel.

Why do art? I love that my jewelry makes women feel pretty and special about themselves because they have given themselves the gift of color. What do you convey through your art? The feelings of color; it has some kind of happiness and a warm-fuzzy feeling. My jewelry complements woman’s coloring, making them feel more alive, sexy and beautiful.

ChallengeMy biggest challenge is trying to make a living through my jewelry and trying to stay creatively fresh, since I’ve been doing this for more than 20 years.AccomplishmentThat I’m making a living (barely) by creating and selling jewelry.

Staying freshI go to the gym three or four times a week. When you’re not doing art? I’m dreaming large with my boyfriend.
