When I first met Betsy a couple of years ago she was creating flawless plaster wall art. As we talked she explained to me that she makes each mold out of clay. The clay is not fired so the mold is not reusable. I was blown away that her beautifully simple pieces had so much work going into them “behind the scenes”. She has a few in her Etsy shop and will make them as custom orders now.
What Betsy is now becoming known for is her beautiful sterling silver jewelry, her initial necklaces, in particular. I get a real kick reading Betsy’s Facebook posts about where various pieces are being mailed off to, all over the world.
I am an artist and jewelry designer with a love for original art and unique jewelry. In my work, I use natural colors that compliment various decor, wall color and style.
My hand-made jewelry is nickel-free and great for those with sensitive skin. I strive to make sterling silver jewelry that is both beautiful and comfortable to wear. After all, you want to enjoy the look AND feel of your jewelry! I have sensitive ears and there is nothing worse than having red ears 2 days after wearing a new pair of earrings- not fun! Using high quality sterling silver is important to me! I form all of the metalwork in my designs using .925 sterling silver and incorporating clean lines with beautiful shapes!
I live in Upstate NY and have a degree in Studio Art from SUNY College at Brockport. My shop name, Sunshine On Water, came about because I love to walk along the beach and watch the sunrise or set over the water- my idea of total perfection!
