Winnie grew up in upstate New York and studied music and literature before working in graphic design and marketing. She discovered metalwork traveling through Western China, Tibet, Nepal and India. There, a Tibetan woman’s exquisitely sculpted earrings of coral, turquoise and gold whispered her name in luminous syllables.
All of Winnie’s work is handmade in a bright and welcoming workshop with great care and presence. Her pieces are Modern Talismans – Minimal yet modern ceremonial objects made animate and given special life and meaning.
Her favorite materials to work with are silver, gold and unusual hand-cut stones.
