Genie Shuller believes that fine hand-made jewelry is a highly personal investment, to be treasured and enjoyed for life. It reflects the thought and care of both the artisan and the wearer. Her love of art objects, especially jewelry, has been a sustaining force which emerged as an active pursuit in 2001 after retirement from a 35-year health care career. She received a diploma in 2003 in jewelry fabrication and repair in Boston, MA, from North Bennet Street School (NBSS), a professional trade school known for traditional craftsmanship. Her work has been exhibited in NBSS student and juried professional shows in the Boston and Washington DC areas, and she has participated for several years in the Santa Fe Studio Tour in Santa Fe, NM. Although Genie produces work for sale through the Santa Fe Studio Tour, her preferred method is through commission, working one-on-one with the purchaser to design and fabricate a piece which is unique and meaningful to the individual.
