Born and raised in the Mid-West, educated on the East Coast, Sylvia is a Bohemian Jeweler with training and background in all aspects of nobel metal, mineral and gemstone work. First inspired by Navajo jewelry of silver and turquoise and a true admirer of Verdura, her work is bold and imaginative, intended to attract attention through beauty, drama and sometimes, whimsy.
Another inspiration for her work has been Frank Lloyd Wright. "...True form is always organic in character. It is really nature-pattern."
Her "wearable" art presents an opportunity to enjoy both art and adornment wrapped up in one package of singular inspiration.
