ARS LONGA, VITA BREVIS Art is Long, Life is Short. This is a phrase I introduce to my art students. It means art lives on, longer than one person’s life.

I began making jewelry for myself to wear to work. I like natural things: cottons, silks, wools and didn’t like the jewelry offered in department stores. They looked good, but when one touched them, one found they were all plastic!
I make jewelry from semi-precious gem stones. The variety of colors and textures are so wonderful, that like many artists, once I started, I couldn’t stop.

So, now I am offering them for sale. I have the jewelry divided into 4 categories: Classic, Romantic, Natural and Contemporary. The word classic means something that is a perfect example of a particular style, something of lasting worth or with a timeless quality. I will include strands of pearls, rose quartz…

The word classic means something that is a perfect example of a particular style, something of lasting worth or with a timeless quality. I will include strands of pearls, rose quartz, amethyst etc. in this category. These are real investments to your wardrobe because they never go out of style. The Natural category will be less formal and earthier, the Romantic will include filigrees and flowers, and the contemporary will be more asymmetrical in design and follow fashion trends.
I hope you will find something to adorn yourself with that will turn your clothing into a complete outfit. Many pieces can go from office to night wear with a simple change of a suit jacket to a sweater.
This site will also offer sculptures that are created by my husband, Otto Osip Ochs, photos from our son, Micah Ochs, and my paintings and collages.From the beginning of recorded history, we see mankind creating art and adorning themselves with it. I teach academically Gifted Students and Visually Talented students in a program known as G/T. In some areas of the USA, it is known as GATE, Gifted and Talented Education. I have a BFA in Painting and Drawing and a Master’s in Education for Gifted Students.
Enjoy!
