Marie started in the jewelry business in 1981, after graduating from CSUS. A Jewelry class in cloisonné enamels hooked her on jewelry making.

Marie started her career with an independent jeweler in Sacramento and in 1995 she began working with a jeweler in Sutter Creek. In this more challenging environment she was able to refine her skills in fabrication, setting and design. Marie has been an active member of Gallery 10 since 2000. She is available for special orders, and can work with materials you have or supply them to you. Marie also does repairs and restringing.
