I am a master goldsmith and owner of Hampton Gem LLC, living in the fabled Hamptons on the east end of Long Island, New York. My life has always been a creative journey. For twenty five years I ran a successful business making high-end leather handbags and accessories and then segued into working with metal and then exclusively working in 22 karat gold. Since 2001 I have been making jewelry and teaching workshops. My education includes extensive studies at FIT, Jewelry Arts Inc. (formerly Jewelry Arts Institute), learning under the tutelage of my mentor, master goldsmith, the late Louise Parrish and earning a Graduate Gemologist (GG) certification from the prestigious Gemological Institute of America.
