The Green Door Studio showcases my one-of-a-kind creations that are for sale, and Gem Resonance; nestled in the foothills just south of Ithaca, beside a koi-filled pond with long valley views.
After almost 50 years of working with the mineral kingdom I have learned to listen, both to the stones and to what the client has to say. Co-creating a custom design brings the interface between light, shape, colored gems and the human form into tight focus. Whenever possible I recycle their metal, gems and family diamonds weaving each element into a narrative, while utilizing sustainably-sourced materials.
As an artist, mother, wife and healer I have a range of expertise and experience that influences my work. My jewelry career has included commissions featured on the cover of Lapidary Journal, being a recipient of the Spectrum Award, running a successful art gallery voted “Best Of Atlanta” for purchasing jewelry, and a 40-year retrospective by the Museum of Contemporary Art in Atlanta.
I split my time between Atlanta, GA, and Ithaca, NY designing jewelry, working with clients, and doing research on the effect of gems and minerals on the human body. I specialize in custom jewelry design, estate consultation, and gem resonance design sessions.
Although the entrance is flat to the ground with a small threshold, the studio is located below the driveway with wide flat stone steps, wood chip, sloped hill down to grass so an an assistant is needed to maneuver a wheelchair over the bumpy ground to the entrance.
