Emily Grace Perry discovered her gift for making jewelry while working on a project with friends, and jewelry design quickly blossomed into a passion. She enjoyed creating beautiful jewelry so much that she began taking jewelry classes. She continues to attend workshops and intensive classes to advance her skills. She has studied jewelry design under Tom Lorio at LSU, silversmithing under Don Norris and wire-wrapping under Gene Sheridan at William Holland School of Lapidary Arts.
Emily’s work is continually evolving, and she is currently working primarily with silver and gold, which she wraps into earrings, pendants and bracelets. Beautiful semi-precious stones, pearls, Swarovski crystals and vintage buttons are some of the objects incorporated into her designs. She also enjoys the search for beautiful and unique stones and gems from all over the world to wrap into pendants and earrings.
Emily also continues to work with copper and brass, which she embosses and colors with various techniques. She has recently added a line of earrings crafted from vintage components.
