After 23 years of teaching Art in Memphis, Dorothy opted to turn her focus on creating jewelry full time. In other word, living the dream!
She originally trained as a printmaker with a focus on intaglio. Etching and engraving metal plates and seeing the ink pressed down into incised textures is when she first fell in love with moving metal. Since childhood, Dorothy has made jewelry. At first using found objects and plants, then moving on to precious metals, gemstones and vintage finds.
Her quest to learn from other jewelers is fueled by her love of travel, giving her a nudge to travel throughout the US and Europe. Most Thursdays and Saturdays, you can find Dorothy at T Clifton Art. Drop by and learn more about her fine art jewelry.
Veronica’s career began in the business world as a certified public accountant. After many years of accounting, she decided she needed a creative outlet. Veronica took various jewelry, metalsmithing and pottery classes in her free time and also went back to school to pursue a career in interior design.
She graduated from Harrington College of Design in Chicago. Her eco-friendly jewelry is a fun mix of colors, shapes and textures. Made with Tagua Nut, aka vegetable ivory, Veronica combines bright, bold colors with unique designs for a truly one of a kind piece.
Largely self-taught, Lisa has pursued fused glass with fervor. She feels she has barely touched the vast possibilities glass presents. She has expanded her artistic skills to include metalworking by studying at the Memphis College of Art and Arrowmont School of Crafts.
Lisa’s exploration in creating began at an early age, learning hand design and sewing from her mother. Her interest in sewing led eventually to quilting and basket weaving. Once Lisa’s children left for college, she resumed her artistic pursuits.
The artist hopes her work will create conversation and allow those collecting to feel they are wearing art.

Kevin and Deborah Healy have been making kaleidoscopes since the early 1990s. The first kaleidoscopes they remember were the cardboard toys passed among friends in some endless childhood summer under the willow trees between stickball games or tea parties.
As jewelers, Deborah and Kevin share a fascination with the sparkling colors and facets of gems. When they began making jewelry scopes, their 25 years of experience in design found a new focus.
“The swirling colors and patterns of kaleidoscopes have enabled us to add a new dimension to how our jewelry may be enjoyed. As artists, we feel fortunate to participate in the revelatory and peaceful world of kaleidoscopes.”

Vilaiwan Fine Jewelry is the work of creative artist and designer, Joe Polthakorn Viboonviriyawong, a second-generation jeweler. In his native Thailand, Joe grew up in his family’s diamond jewelry business and developed an instinct for identifying quality stones and metals. A natural-born artist, Joe began designing jewelry at age 14, when he created avant-garde diamond rings that hinted at his future career.
As an independent visual concept designer for major retailers in the United States and Asia, he quickly became known for his bold, eye-catching store window installations. In 2005 in Los Angeles, Joe returned to his roots and launched Vilaiwan Fine Jewelry, which caught the attention of store buyers who recognized his unique blend of art and ornamentation. His meticulous hand-crafted, statement necklaces, cuffs, and earrings became top sellers in museum stores and exclusive boutiques as stylish women in international fashion capitals began wearing and collecting his glamorous wearable arts.
A favorite among fashion editors, stylists, and celebrities, Vilaiwan Fine Jewelry has been featured in magazines, on runways, and in film. Joe recently collaborated with Disney Consumer Products to create the couture jewelry collection for the major motion picture, “Oz the Great and Powerful.”
