Artisan Jewelry

As an Artist who loves the ancient and vintage jewelry of long ago, I now create the feel of those times in my Vintage Designed Jewelry. Like my paintings that are inspired by art history, these pieces take on a life of their own when creating them. They are one of a kind Art Pieces; no two are exactly alike.

I begin with vintage brass stampings, beads, stones and chains; many from old stock from Providence, RI, Germany and Czechoslovakia. I use only glass, crystal stones and some genuine gemstones and pearls; never acrylic. Some pieces are raw brass with wonderful patina and blemishes of time. Newer findings are from old themes and molds. Components from old jewelry are also used to create that certain look. Some imperfections of age and wear will be present, but all shall enhance their beauty and charm. Only pieces with that certain quality are selected.

My jewelry is designed to hang beautifully to compliment the neckline. Each necklace is signed with my logo P initial. I hope you will like my work and hope they’ll give you pleasure.
