Ms. Mattison's Profile
I am an artist with a double-life living half the week in rural New Mexico in seclusion with the river and mountains, my beau, my cats and a jeweler's bench and the other half the week in Santa Fe with the bustle of drawing groups and intaglio printmaking, no kitchen for cooking and plenty of drop-in new friends.
I learned silversmithing from my late best friend and have not had to find another job since which has been such an incredible gift. It has been 10 years that I have been a jeweler. I joined etsy to show the labors of love and flights of fancy that either harken back to my first pieces with Darren or are experiments influenced and inspired by what is happening in my life now.
