My training began in Geology at SUNY Adirondack, then on to Minerology at SUNY Geneseo, then casting and fabrication at the Holland School for Jewelers, with final certification in diamonds / colored stones through GIA Santa Monica.
As a gemologist I am focused on selecting the best in gem-quality stones and setting them into American sterling silver. Creations are fabricated and forged, stones are hammer-set for security, and hand-polished. Components used may be cast, die-struck, cut from sheet, or shaped from wire. My focus in 2020 will endeavor to have 90 % of my product line as finger rings in sizes 2 – 13.
