About Tom & Kathleen
Married in San Francisco on Valentine's Day in 1985, Tom and Kathleen spent their early years teaching at university level for a decade before they met. Since then, they've built a reputation as world-class metalsmith/jewelers and created a full-time American Craft business that flourished nationally.
In 1995 they were invited by Grovewood Gallery to become studio artists in the historic Biltmore Industries complex (now Grovewood Village) in Asheville, NC. In the last 22 years, they transitioned to exhibiting in local galleries, working in their studio showroom, and using technological innovations.
Tom and Kathleen incorporate their lifetime of good design - inspired by the natural environments and the world around them - into their series of earrings, pendants, brooches, bracelets and rings.
They make these unique, mixed metal pieces from sterling silver and 14k gold-fill as well as base metals like niobium, copper, bronze verdigris patina on bronze, or enamel. They also have an extensive collection of silver and gold rings.
