The details are not the details. They make the design. — Charles Eames
About the Studio
This quote inspires all our craftspeople, and underlies the attention I give to every piece that leaves my workshop.
My artisan designs and gorgeous gemstones give this collection a perfectly eclectic look. Each singular piece is crafted with profound authenticity and the utmost attention to beauty, detail and perfection in craftsmanship.
I select all semi-precious gemstones and metals from gem shows and showrooms from across the country. This allows me to choose the most stunning of materials and assures complete quality control.
I design and create all jewels in my Western Massachusetts studio, where I can gaze out to a back yard full of squirrels, trees, sometimes flowers and, a lot of the time, weeds.
My wonderfully supportive galleries, boutiques, spas and lovely clientele showcase the best representation of my obsession. Layer or wear alone – Hallies Comet Jewelry will make you smile.
