The daughter of a metal smith, Liza began building jewelry at a very early age. After studying painting and sculpture at The Massachusetts College of Art, she transitioned into a successful career as a makeup artist, painting faces of women all over New York City and the Hamptons.
It was through brides, in the early years of the new millennium, that Liza's passion for beading became a business. Liza began building custom jewelry and headpieces for her clients, enjoying the challenge of capturing the simple yet diverse elegance each bride embodies on her very special day.
An accomplished writer, Liza utilizes her background as a storyteller to give her handmade jewelry a sense of history. In viewing her designs, it’s easy to see how each collection tells its own story.
Liza's jewelry is cast in sterling silver and 18k gold vermeil, and adorned with gemstones and pearls. Having studied pearl-stringing at New York City's acclaimed Studio Jewelers school, Liza also collects unique beads from around the world to create one-of-a-kind statement necklaces and bracelets. Her collections are carried in fine boutiques and galleries around the U.S., including the Hamptons and Cape Cod.
Always charity-minded, Liza enjoys building and donating her creations to a number of causes close to her heart.
