Elizabeth's jewelry lends itself to today's lifestyle by offering clean, sophisticated designs which move easily from casual to work to dress. Elizabeth is drawn to forms which have a simple yet elegant look and a contemporary style to them. Many of her pieces incorporate beach stones which she gathers from beaches in Maine. Her jewelry can be found at fine juried craft shows in the Northeastern U.S., as well as at galleries and shops throughout the country. All of her work is made entirely by hand, beginning with flat sheet and wire which is transformed through sawing, forging, and soldering into classic, timeless pieces of jewelry. Each piece is signed by the artist and is individually hand-crafted with care to high standards at her studio in the coastal town of Kittery, Maine.
Custom work and wholesale inquiries are welcome. A catalog is available on request.
