Tricia specializes in handmade jewelry, accessories, and mixed media illustrations.
Her creativity started out in art and drawing as she was growing up.
She graduated from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh with an Associate Degree in Visual Communications.
After spending over eleven years enjoying work as a Graphic Designer she moved to Ohio to be with her husband. There she worked in a jewelry repair shop to satisfy her curiosity in jewelry design, while still honing her design and illustration skills in her spare time.
Although her jewelry making started out as a hobby, her creative nature got the best of her. Obtaining so many beautiful beads and finished pieces she decided to start selling her work.
Her pieces are made of several different materials including Swarovski crystals, pearls, glass beads, sterling silver, gold filled, silver plated, gold plated, and pewter beads and findings, even unique custom made Polymer clay beads and focal pieces, and pendants made from her own illustrations. These pieces can be worn everyday or even for special occasions such as weddings or proms.
Tricia and her husband are now back in Pennsylvania and living in Lancaster County where she continues to create many types of crafts including jewelry, cards, and wooden jewelry and trinket boxes she has created using many different materials including ribbon, lace, polymer clay flowers and tiles of her illustrations.
