Hello world!
Gingerlily began in Chicago in 2004 and moved to Barcelona, Spain a couple years later.

I grew up in a tiny farm town in Southern Illinois on the Mississippi River but made the big move to Chicago, which I called home for 8 years. Seeking a new adventure, I traveled miles to land in sunny Barcelona where I began studying, first metal smithing and now enameling, both at La Llotja Art School. I live with my lovely and endlessly entertaining Catalan boyfriend, and our turtle, in a flat in the Guinardó district of Barcelona. In my metals studio, I spend hours creating one-of-kind, hand-crafted pieces.

I hope you enjoy what you see in my shop and please feel free to stop in or drop me a line anytime.
