A photo of Liz in her signature layered jewelry look - earrings, necklaces, bracelets - it's a party!

Designing comfortable jewelry that demonstrates both a contemporary flare and a knowledge of the craft is Liz's passion. Working with sterling silver, she searches for shapes and forms that are clean and fluid that emerge through forging, fabrication and casting. Exploring minimalism enables her jewelry to be an accessory or a statement, an everyday piece or a one-of-a-kind item.

Each piece is crafted by Liz's hands in her studio with the skills she has accrued from attending craft schools and workshops with individual artists and masters of their craft.
