An enchanting gemstone, an ancient technique, and the discovery of her creative process inspire Connie's experimentation with asymmetry, balance, form, texture and color. She's interested in the challenge of incorporating sculptural qualities with and unusual materials, methods, forms or gemstones into a finished piece.
After 17 years of study, with such Vermont metal-smiths as Timothy Grannis, Laurie Peters, and Jacob Albee, Connie continues her adventure as a designer metal-smith.
Connie was born and raised on the pristine coast of Maine. She later moved to Vermont and earned her Studio Art/Psychology degree from the University of Vermont. Besides getting her hands dirty making jewelry, she enjoys gardening, swimming, painting, family time with her children, Isara and Noah, and husband, Aaron. She also spends time volunteering with a local theatre company, Vermont Handcrafters and for several local non-profits.
She is delighted to spend her days hand-making and matching wonderful people with their most desired pieces of heartfelt jewelry.
