The Green Door Studio is the gallery for my one-of-a-kind creations that are for sale.
My studio is 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.
