Heather Skowood Contemporary Jewelry

Who am I?...

Heather is a self proclaimed metal goddess from Philadelphia where she received her 3D Fine Arts BFA at Moore College of Art and Design in 1991. After receiving her degree Heather spent 5 years working with Philadelphia goldsmith Krikor Yeremian who taught her all the bench skills needed to become the metal goddess she is today. In 2001 Heather spent a year at Worcester Center for Craft in Massachusetts as an artist -in- residence in metals which prepared her for opening up her first shop when she moved to Manchester, UK in 2002. While living in the UK Heather operated her jewelry studio at the Manchester Craft and Design Centre, taught jewelry to high school students, was a member of the Manchester Jewellers Network (MJN) with whom she helped organize exhibitions to exhibit jewelry in Europe as well as the US. It was with the MJN Heather curated and managed, "Architectonics: Foundations in Jewellery" which was exhibited in Manchester, Liverpool + San Francisco. Heather is once again in Worcester, Massachusetts where she is concentrating on creating art jewelry for exhibitions in her private jewelry studio as well as teaching at Metalwerx in Waltham. No matter where Heather is she remains dedicated to her goal to adorn all the world with her jewelry creations.
