Each piece is hand crafted with a limited supply. New designs are introduced on a regular basis which takes time to develop and create. Please remember, each piece is unique. Matching earrings may be slightly different but will seem the same.

2004 was the start of Barbara's exploration with metal. Master goldsmith Charles Lewton-Brain said of Barbara's spring fever work, " You've taken an idea and made it your own. It's so delicate!"

The work has been seen in small jewelry galleries in Maine and Massachusetts. Featured shows and juried art galleries such as; DeCordova Museum Student Shows - MA, Karenna Maraj Collection - Belmont, MA, Once in a Blue Moon - Martha's Vineyard, MA, Vine and Cupboard - Bethel, ME

Barbara has studied with notable Goldsmiths such as; Munya Abagail Upin, Cynthia Eid, Paulette Werger, Jayne Redman, Charles Lewton-Brain, Michael Good, Metalwerx, DeCordova Museum School
