I am a retired teacher/artist. Practice my Art out of my home
studio. Continually fascinated by jewelry methods, techniques, and
new materials. I love to wear it too.

Pilar Netzel
St George, VT. USA

I attended Philadelphia College of Art where I studied Metal Arts. I
then went back to school and got a Masters degree in teaching art.
Since then I have been teaching and working with metal for many
years. I have made jewelry, small & large sculpture, utilitarian
objects; such as bowls and candelabra’s and am now making
wall-pieces made out of a variety of metals.

Nicole Ibey
ni designs
Plainfield, VT. USA


I have been making jewelry through the lost wax method seriously for
about 6 or 7 years now. I played with it a little before that, but
until I worked in the industry was was when i realized the real
potential it opened up rather than fabrication. I prefer working
with gold and platinum rather than silver, but the way the metal
market is right now it doesn’t seem to be working in my favor :)I
opened my own business in April of this year (2011). I specialize in
custom pieces. I am a sculptor at heart so I enjoy making that one
of a kind piece come to life for the customer that they envision.
