These earrings are so beautiful and such a perfect gift for my friend. They arrived a couple days earlier than I expected too which is great. I can't wait to see her wearing them. Thank you Glynis!

About

Earthy, warm and rustic. Everyday jewelry that soothes the soul.

I am a native of the coast of Maine. With the inspiration of my mother and grandmother, who were both painters of fine art, it was no surprise that I gravitated toward a life in the arts. I painted at first, though not on canvas like my mother and grandmother. I painted furniture and murals, both commercial and residential, and later added floorcloths into the mix.
As time passed, my quest to create continued. This quest led me to MECA in Portland, ME, to take a jewelry & metalsmithing class. I wanted to find ways to use the sea glass and beach stone I had been collecting since I was a young girl. I had no idea this would change my life forever. It was here, in the 3 hours of my first class, that I found my passion..... a crazy love for metals. I find their versatility, the tones, textures and patinas you can create, incredibly intriguing. No piece is completely planned out. Sometimes I let the metal or salvaged find speak to me and let the piece develop as I work. Now, years later, I am embracing this passion full time in my home studio. Most days, that is where you will find me....at my bench, surrounded by a torch and tools, hammering out new designs and mixing metals with reclaimed leather, torch fired enamels and found objects. It soothes my soul.
Today, I live on the seacoast with my family, never having wandered far from the rocky shores of Maine.

Welcome!
All my pieces are handcrafted by me in my studio just minutes from the rocky shores of the Maine coast. My work is earthy and rustic and made from the heart. I tend to let the found pieces inspire the designs I create.
I reuse and recycle wherever I can. Leather, most of the copper, stone, glass, escutcheons and barn nails are salvaged from various locations.
Please keep in mind that all of my pieces are handcrafted and may vary slightly in appearance and measurement. I do my best to represent my pieces accurately in my pictures and measurements.

Thank you for your interest in my work!
