About Lisa

Art has always been a major part of my life. I grew up surrounded by creative parents my Mother was a painter, she also was a awesome seamstress, my Dad had a wood shop, and my grandmother did needlework. I was a Art major in college, focused on charcoal drawing and textile. My mother taught me to sew and embroider at age 6,we used to sew together at night.I made all of my own clothes and lots of the pieces had my embroidered flowers, butterflies, and designs.

Bead embroidery is my passion. For me it is a combination of painting and sculpture. I have a deep love and appreciation of nature and I express these qualities in my jewelry. I use natural and organic materials: gates, geodes, fossils, semi-precious stones, pearls, metals, beads and some items found on walks in my work. I also recycle materials such as coral, minerals, wood as a way of honoring nature and not just taking from it. I hand embroider onto faux suede my designs, line them and stitch them together. My pieces are very tactile and supple .They beckon the viewer to touch and hold. I encourage people to do so, to fully appreciate their essence. I am frequently told that my jewelry are little pieces of art. Most pieces are one-of- a- kind Art to Wear. Should you be interested in a piece which is sold I would be happy to make you something similar.

All of my work is designed and created in my home studio. My work can be seen a Art Festivals in Florida, CT, and New York. I am happy to do jewelry parties. My jewelry can be found in these stores:
