Meet Rita Tucker

Hi, I am Rita.   I spent the last forty years working in the accounting field.   With encouragement from family, friends and fellow artisans, I am now going to use the other side of my brain to be creative and have fun.

During those work years I did some exploration on the creative side of life and took classes in painting, drawing, wood carving, metal etching, metal-smithing, beading, enameling, glass fusion, mosaic and silver fusing ( to name a few).   I am also a certified artisan in precious metal clay.  Retirement from accounting has now given me the opportunity to fully explore how I can combine the techniques I have learned from numerous teachers to create my own style of jewelry.   Using a variety of raw materials, I incorporate a unique hand-crafted centerpiece into each piece of jewelry that I create.

In the future, while creating jewelry, I will also continue carving and adding to my collection of wooden creations, while I enjoy life with my husband Peter, my son Matt, BJ the silky terrier and Whiskers the black and grey tabby cat.
