At The School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, I studied Art History, Stained Glass, Architecture and Jewelry Design ~ Parrish Relics are symbols of everything that inspires me along the way.
Every Parrish Relics design is individually handcrafted in my studio with the elements of resilient polymer clay, stained glass, semi-precious stones, scented resins and glass vessels. Hand painted with layered patinas of antiqued silver or gold for a romantic, time worn presence. Finished with beaded or antiqued brass plated chains. I enjoy creating designs that tell visual stories and start conversations, that are more than simple adornment. I like to think of them as Charms & Talismans that also bring a bit of Magic & Beauty to the daily wardrobe.
Over the years I have been lucky enough to create for some of my favorite writers, museums & the entertainment industry, and for romantics who daydream about Venice, obsess over flora and fauna, admire Medieval oddities, worship Pre-Raphaelite Bohemians or just enjoy a well adorned fairy tale.
