About Sleeping Fox, Inc
Welcome to Sleeping Fox Jewelry Market, based in Cape Coral, Florida
where my designs are sleeping until I wake them!
I'm Beverly Fox, but you can call me Bev.
I am a jeweler, educator, and entrepreneur.
I founded Sleeping Fox Inc. in 2004 after patenting a jewelry clasp, but I was a jewelry artist long before, beginning with a jewelry class in the early '90's for a college course portfolio at the Maine College of Art (formally the Portland School of Art). When I created my first piece in metal I'd realized I had found my passion - in metal arts. I have been creating in silver and gold ever since, doing what I love!
I am currently President and part-owner of Harbour View Gallery, located in Cape Harbour, Cape Coral, FL. This unique gallery showcases and sells 30 local artists' colorful artwork in a variety of mediums. Our Featured Artist Program spotlights a 3-D and a 2-D artist each month, hosting a wine reception for them and their work on the first Tuesday of month to live music from the band steps away at the Cape Harbour Tiki Hut.
Teaching has become an important aspect of my life. I have taught at the Cape Coral Art Center since 1999, after relocating to Southwest Florida from Southern Maine with my husband, Bruce. I currently teach four classes a week at all levels - beginners to advanced. I also teach up to three students at a time in my home studio. And a few weeks a year, you can find me teaching week-long intensive classes at William Holland School of Lapidary in Georgia.
When I'm not working at the gallery or teaching, I am creating! I love exploring new and exciting techniques to make unique jewelry with color and movement. My inspiration usually begins with rare stones boasting beautiful color combinations and unusual textures for truly custom pieces of art.
In the summer of 2022, I began working on this website with my apprentice, Kelly. We've had fun awakening the "Sleeping Fox Jewelry Market" for your shopping convenience.
We hope you enjoy wearing our creations!
