Touch of Silver - the Monday Morning Artist Interview
The jewelry I create is inspired by nature and art. My many years walking the shores of Jones Beach on Long Island, my college years hiking and skiing the mountains of Vermont and the more recent vacation times in the Adirondacks all provide inspiration when I am in my studio.
The rich earth tone colors in semi-precious stones such as pietersite or green ocean jasper and the cool blue of lapis lazuli remind me of favorite gardens, woodlands, mountains, surf, or my memories of a gallery painting. For three years, I have been selling my jewelry in local stores in Rochester, NY and Philadelphia, and at Rochester's Memorial Art Gallery.
