About the Team
Designer & Co-Founder
Original, passionate and trained in a range of artistic disciplines, Diane - and her work - is a study in balance. With a BFA concentrating in painting and architecture and an MA in Art Education, Diane’s jewels are informed by a technician’s knowledge of form and balance as well as an artist’s eye for scale and patina. Her private studies with Master Goldsmiths and Master Silversmiths refined a passion for jewelry-making discovered while crafting assemblage pieces from antique beads and objects found on world travels. Diane is a dedicated member of Ethical Metalsmiths and creates her work with the stewardship of this planet first and foremost.
Ron’s rich career steeped in the creative arts, brings a deep understanding of nurturing creative talent as well as presenting that talent in the marketplace. Directing business and sales growth with his wife and partner Diane, Ron’s skills as a certified business coach and award-winning jazz musician in addition to his incarnations as a teacher at the prestigious Juilliard Drama School, celebrity trainer and jazz manager is the perfect counterpoint to Diane’s metalsmithing artistry.
