Mary Beth Nardy
MB Jewelry Designs
I am a retired registered nurse who graduated from Moore College of Art & Design with a degree in Illustration. I studied metalsmithing under Layne Freedman at the Community Art Center, Marthe Shea/Roberts at the Tuscarora Lapidary Society, Pat Henriques at the Main Line Art Center, and Paul Neilsen at Peters Valley.
My creations begin as a sketch and are formed using traditional metalsmithing techniques, chainmaille techniques, wirewrapping techniques, and precious metal clay. I travel to gem shows to hand pick gemstones to use in my designs.
