Enameling Guest Instructor
While Merry-Lee made cloisonné jewelry for fun and relaxation, her plan was to become a mathematician. Quite unexpectedly, her fascination with the enameling process turned her hobby into a profession. Since 1976, she has been creating timeless heirlooms that will endure for centuries.
She is a designer, a craftsman and an artist. She is also guilty of thoroughly enjoying her work.
"I see myself as a dedicated romantic, expressing love of life through my art. Using glass and gold, I create sunshine shouts of joy or murmurs of quiet remoteness. The resulting cloisonné jewelry is my voice. What really matters is the people who are touched by it in some way" - Merry-Lee
