About

The Creative Process Is Never Ending.

My passion for designing and fabricating precious metal jewelry began as a youngster. My great uncle and 2 of his sons were master jewelers in New York City. Several times a year they would travel to my hometown to sell to the local Armenians.
Yes, I am Armenian.
The unveiling of the beautiful treasures they would bring with them was so exciting to me. They would let me try on these very expensive jewels and I would admire and dream that someday I would be able to make beautiful jewelry like they did.
I was directed towards Fashion Design. Jewelry making was considered a Man's Job.
Today as an independent adult I create heirloom quality jewelry in a variety of styles. I also cut gemstones for all of my pieces.
New designs come to me in my dreams. I am totally immersed
in my work. I love the entire process. The mechanical hand drawing, ( NO COMPUTER PROGRAMS) is necessary for each design to be hand fabricated as the hand drawing creates muscle memory for the actual fabrication process. I do not rush my process.
The finishing process is tedious.
Recently I began producing jewelry components and jewelry from Polymer Clay.
Polymer Clay is a synthetic clay that can be rolled , molded and poured into a variety of shapes left only to the imagination. The colors are endless.
I also design and make mixed media jewelry using all types and shapes of beads, both gemstones, pearls and glass seed beads.
I have been an artist as long as I can remember and making heirloom quality jewelry for over 25 years.

Thanks for taking the time to read my business story.
Sincerely,
Margaret
