Brought up in a verdant neighborhood near Seattle, Washington, Conni has nature in her blood. Having begun her jewelry training at age 15, Conni continued these studies when she moved to California, where she now resides. Drawing from universal themes, she connects us to the natural world. It's easy to trace the inspiration of her decidedly feminine forms. Conni's vast experience as a designer/goldsmith stems from 31 years of honing her skills, owning a gallery, to designing and producing her current 18 karat gold, diamond and fine colored gem collections.
