Dee lives with her husband and son in the mountains of western North Carolina. Since 1981 she has been designing and making jewelry. She graduated from Stewart's International School for Jewelers and completed additional coursework at the Gemological Institute of America. Dee designs her original forms in wax from which a mold is made to reproduce the design in sterling silver or gold. This process, known as lost wax casting, provides an accurate replica of the original wax. Dee's designs range from realistically detailed animals to wonderfully three dimensional birds and wildflowers, all of which are copyrighted. These are considered miniature sculptures by most of her collectors, prized for the fact that they are Dee's unique creations.
In addition to the web site, Dee still sells her work directly through art and craft fairs in the Eastern US. Her show schedule is available on this web site. With the opening of her Gallery in 2009, Dee now has a retail location in downtown Black Mountain, NC. The web site provides a means to reach a wider audience looking for specific jewelry designs.
Only a handful of figurative jewelry lines made in the USA today can compare to the quality and range of Dee's jewelry designs. Dee keeps her production small and hands-on to maintain the high standard of craftsmanship and uniqueness she strives for. To read a few customer comments, click here:
