Betsy graduated with a BA in Metals from the Massachusetts College of Art in 1996 and moved into a studio in an old mill building in the Jamaica Plain section of Boston. Using tools she inherited from the late Joan Grant, a silversmith and former riding friend, Betsy crafted her first collection. She was quickly accepted into juried wholesale and retail shows. Business has been booming ever since.
Betsy's designs are fluid - reflecting her early training in dance and gymnastics, and sensual - hinting at the female form. One could say her designs have an almost Scandinavian feel. Betsy prizes shape and movement over surface texture and color. She brings her jewelry alive with links and hinges in a way that is comfortable to wear, fun and aesthetically pleasing. She works primarily in sterling silver, and her pieces are either fabricated from sheet into hollow forms, or cast through the lost-wax casting process.
Betsy currently resides in Ipswich, Massachusetts with her husband Jeff, sons Connor and Rowan, and dog Jack.
