She began designing handbags in 1983 in New York City, where an inner artistic potential was triggered by the variety and use of industrial materials that surrounded her daily life in the city. Her ideas were transformed into designs for durable metal handbags in a variety of sizes, shapes and metals. Working intuitively, in an environment of artistic friends, she began to create an original, unique style, resulting in a modern, durable and versatile accessory.
All handbags are made of stainless steel with leather and metal components and are hand fabricated and assembled in a recently refurbished production facility outside of Philadelphia. The use of stainless steel as the primary material has been effective in the strength, form and longevity of the product. When paired with the leather elements, the handbags become user friendly and ultra functional. Maintaining quality and precision in the fabrication of each piece is crucial.
She continues to push the boundaries of working in this medium. We look forward to seeing more of her designs.
