Georgia Ann Philippe
Palatine, Illinois. USA

A professional bench jeweler with a BFA in Metal Crafts, I work in
all metals, diamonds and gems. My personal passion is enamels,
particularly cloisonne. My free time is spent in my studio working
on enamels and granulation and trying to improve my skills. I teach
beginning enameling on occasion, trying to bring more people to this
wonderful art form. I believe firmly in taking classes and expanding
my abilities. There is always more to learn.
