Emily Rosenfeld's Profile
In 1988, after graduating with a degree in English from SUNY New Paltz,I started working for a production jewelry company. I stayed for two years and leaned so much. Understanding that I wanted to earn my living with my hands and with my eye I moved to the Bay Area, took a few workshops and began making my own jewelry in 1991. For two years, in Oakland, I ran my business out of a Murphy bed closet.
Since then I have settled in Western Massachusetts. Here, with a view of birch trees and a river we swim in during the summer, my studio is in a converted factory building filled with other artists, 2 blocks from my house. Grounded at home with my partner Keith and our beautiful son Jasper, I feel continually inspired to develop new designs and play with new materials.
I am privileged and thankful to be part of the immensely supportive and loving...
