Biography

Having once been told that the human eye and brain can see a wiggle in a line to .03" Brittany took it as a challenge. She uses a standard jeweler's saw to cut all the twirly lines by hand. Her work is not fueled by electricity, but, much like Popeye, by spinach and beer. She also deploys the classic "hit it with a hammer" technique on her wrought pieces, which balances well with the meticulous work of cutting those curlicues.

Having taken Community College courses in jewelry through high school, Brittany went to the School for American Crafts at the Rochester Institute of Technology, graduating with honors in 2002. She then went on to set up an increasingly complicated shop (which now includes a small personal jungle). She has always worked as an independent jeweler with her own studio, developing her unique style through the time-honored method of trial and error.
