Judi Powers was born and raised in Chester County, PA, surrounded by flowers and fauna. As a teen, she studied art history in New York City before a successful career in book publishing. Following September 11th, she began recreational jewelry classes as a way to create with her hands and heart. Ten years later, she pursued intensive training at the Fashion Institute of Technology, NYC, earning her AAS degree in Jewelry Design and honing her skills through further jewelry fabrication studies. Judi lives and works in the Hudson River Valley, borrowing shapes from nature and transforming them to make them intimately and infinitely wearable. With sustainability as her goal, she works exclusively with recycled and reclaimed precious metals. Conflict-free diamonds and stones with unusual characteristics are hand selected for a collection that is comfortable, effortless, and timeless by design.
