Darci Shea

Darci Shea is a cloisonne and jewelry craftsman with experience in metal work and a background in illustration.

She studied children’s book illustration and metalsmithing at Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia and cloisonné enameling from master enamellist Merry-Lee Rae in California.

Her education gave her the tools necessary to begin crafting handmade pieces of art that combine glass enamel and precious metals into vibrant designs that are timeless and visually narrative.

Inspired by her experiences living aboard a ship as a child, Darci is inspired by the natural world and incorporated themes of nature into every piece.
