I created my first collection of Photo-Jewelry nearly 20 years ago. This idea came to me as a direct result of my art school education at Pratt Institute, where I majored in photography and my experience working as a studio assistant with two different successful jewelry artists. The two mediums seemed a perfect match. The jewelry became the frame for my photographs and the photo replaced the gem or stone which is often found in many jewelry designs.
My production line of photo-jewelry grew to include hundreds of designs featuring many of my own own original photographs. Images from nature, glimpses of faces and old victorian portraits frequent my jewelry designs. I have exhibited my work in many fine craft galleries and trade shows in the U.S and have been fortunate enough to have had my Personalized Photo-Jewelry featured in Martha Stewart Living magazine.
Now, nearly 20 years later, my focus has shifted from high volume production jewelry to spending more time on limited editions and one of a kind pieces. As well, I have expanded my design offerings for custom made Personalized Photo - Jewelry where you, the customer can have your own photography incorporated into a piece of jewelry. Many of my original Photo - Jewelry designs are available to order through my SHOP and ETSY store as well as through Special Events and by appointment in the studio.
