A fascination with the the unique features of metalsmithing and jewelry has captivated Carole for over forty years. Functional art that is aesthetically pleasing, unique and well made is her focus in making jewelry. Problem solving is an integral part of the process of constructing each piece of jewelry. She enjoys exploring the kinesthetic possibilities of wearable art and incorporates moving parts when possible. She uses sterling silver, fine silver, copper and sometimes gold for the metal parts of her work. She typically uses precious, semi-precious stones, pearls, glass beads, and found objects for embellishment.
Carole studied art and fashion design in Paris France at Atelier Martin and Chambre Syndicale De La Couture Parisienne. She attended Columbus College of Art and Design, and later received a degree in Art Education from OSU. She has taught K-8 art since 1982.
Carole accepts commissions. If you see something you would like in a different size or in different materials please contact her.
