Denise Fletcher began working with silver and gold jewelry in 2003 when she left the corporate world. A graduate of Nyack College in her native New York, she holds a B.S. degree in management. Yet, she initially gained her jeweler skills at The Kalamazoo Institute of Arts in Southwest Michigan almost by accident. A mistaken course selection resulted in a new passion and career!
Years of self learning and additional courses at The Metalwerx School for Jewelry in Massachusetts, and the Gemological Institute of America in NYC, resulted in a Diamond Graduate Diploma. Although these courses have added so much, she finds the best place for learning jewelry-making skills has always been from sharing ideas and techniques with her fellow jewelers.
Denise uses sterling silver, and occasionally adds gold metals in her work, creating jewelry with a compelling modern vibe. She finds that inspiration is everywhere. Her work has been featured across Michigan and Vermont, where she lived for the past 20 years. Now a resident of Texas, which she already loves, she looks forward to exploring and enjoying this beautiful state!
