Martha has enjoyed a full life of creating jewelry. She graduated with honors from Rochester Institute of Technology. After graduating she went right to work making jewelry for John Atencio in Denver. The years spent working for John Atencio allowed Martha to refine her ability to create pieces that juxtaposed strong yet delicate lines with modern flair.
Martha has lived in Illinois, New York, North Carolina, Florida and now Colorado taking with her a little piece of the culture in her designs.
The Cylindrical collection was born and designed while she was in college in the late 70’s - early 80’s, where she learned how to use the lathe. She has been playing with the lathe formed pieces for many years.
The Silver and Gold jewelry is something she has been making and perfecting for the past 40 years.
The Boho collection is a fun and playful collection inspired by her life in Colorado.
Martha focuses much of her attention on dots and linear structured forms. Repetitive dots and sleek forms inspire her with their continuity, simplicity and strength. “My heart regulates my hands”.
Martha’s design achievements have earned her several awards. Most recently, she received the coveted, Finalist in the Saul Bell Design Award 2012. Also The Niche Award and The Mark Pheiffer Memorial Award.
Please enjoy owning and wearing your piece of jewelry made with love by Martha.
