About BeniFini

Sales 38
On Etsy since 2012

I love being a creator, and I want to share my work with everyone.

I like to think of myself as a professional tinkerer.

I received my BFA from Maine College of Art where I studied metalsmithing, woodworking, and photography. The studios looked out onto Casco Bay, where the sun glimmered across the water. I spent many hours in the wood shop, designing and making my jeweler's bench, and since then I have spent countless hours sitting at my bench making jewelry.

After school, I moved to Pennsylvania and could not decide what avenue I wanted to take with my metalsmithing skills. I eventually decided that I wanted to be an art educator, so I went back to school at Millersville University to obtain a teaching certificate. There, I took painting, printmaking, and ceramics. And that is when I fell in love with throwing pottery. Someday I will have my own wheel and dazzle you all with my pottery, but that is down the road a bit. Don't worry, I will let you know when that day comes!

Some time passed, and I now have two amazing children who I want to spend as much time with as possible.

I opened my Etsy shop so that I can share my work with you, while still having a flexible schedule that allows me to be a mom, a jeweler, and a tinkerer.

All of the work in my shop is fully handmade by me.
I imagine the design, form and solder the metal, set the stones, string the pearls, polish and finish the pieces, take the photos (with some help from my husband!) and take the packages to the post office.

I hope you enjoy what you see here!
