Dorothy had always been intrigued with designing in gold and precious gemstones throughout her college years pursuing a graphic arts degree. In 1993, she went on to advance her education at the Gemological Institute of America in New York City studying precious metals and gemstones, earning degrees in both.

Dorothy, whose studio is nestled high in the Endless Mountains in Eagles Mere, Pennsylvania, has won much acclaim for her artistic designs and has proven her natural talent in the art of goldsmithing. From original concept, to sculpting in wax, to the finished product, attention to detail and design is given to every beautiful piece of her hand-crafted jewelry.

Old-world training and experience, combined with state-of-the-art equipment and tools, make Dorothy a designer and goldsmith of distinction. Her passion for beauty, her dedication to excellence and her unique vision ensure a collection filled with elegant, wearable art.
