A round-about way back to my start

Valerie began making jewelry in 1977 at Edinboro University of PA. After graduating with a BFA, the necessity of a full-time career was realized by becoming a manager in the retail jewelry business, followed by a second Bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design. After many years of magazine, book, web and advertising design, the possibility of weaving her talents together into a small business crafting earthy casual jewelry has begun.

Inspired by music, nature, historic places, ancient art, as well as modern pop-art shapes and homage to mid-century modern furniture. The designs originate low-tech on paper, then are translated to Adobe Illustrator files to be cut on high-tech laser cutters.
