Join us for a special artist lecture with fine jewelry maker Heather Beck, from Easthampton, MA. She was a studio assistant at Peters Valley in 2006. We are thrilled to hear what she has been up to!
“I got the bug for working with my hands from my dad, and fell in love with the alchemical magic that is metalsmithing as an undergraduate at UMass Dartmouth.
My studio work ranges from hand-textured collections inspired by the natural world I love to explore, to custom pieces that symbolize the magic in my client’s lives. I love the stories behind every custom piece, and work with each client to design an object that represents their unique truth. Sometimes it’s a story of love, sometimes it’s a story of achievement, sometimes it’s about needing a talisman that can guide you through a storm. Whatever story brings someone to my studio, I feel honored to hear it and be a part of manifesting the next chapter.”
