Jewels That Dance welcomes a distinguished designer/goldsmith to the store for two days this October. We invite and encourage you to come and meet Barbara Heinrich, a fine jewelry artist and master of innovation and design during our evening reception on Thursday, October 26th from 5pm to 8pm or on Friday, October 27th from 11am to 5pm.
Barbara was born in Heilbronn Germany, and grew up in the vineyards of her family’s winery. To keep herself busy she says she collected dried noodles, pods, snail shells and broken glass, which she strung together to create jewelry. Heinrich graduated from the Jewelry Academy of Pforzheim and won a scholarship to study in the US. She earned a MFA from the University Of Rochester Institute Of Technology, after which she established her studio in up-state New York. There she creates distinctive and award winning jewelry pieces by blending timeless aesthetics with contemporary ideas. She is known for her soft brushed gold surfaces, juxtaposed with burnished lines and surface set gemstones.
