The Edgartown Jeweler's Studio is a cooperative working studio located at 261 Upper Main Street in Edgartown, MA. The studio is comprised of three rooms: a conference room where we meet with clients; a multi-use room that includes the photography and gemology areas, desks, and a jewelry cleaning and finishing space; and the main studio room which contains jewelry workbenches and tools for all of us. We are negotiating to acquire more space in the building.
Currently the members beside myself include a gemologist, a cloisonné enamelist and a jeweler. We combine our skills and often work together on various projects and pieces.
Kathrine Kittredge brings to the studio jewelry making and repair skills as well as her knowledge of jewelry appraisal and gemology. She does insurance and estate appraisals. We work together to find certified diamonds and other fine gemstones for our clients at very reasonable prices.
Lucinda Sheldon has developed a line of jewel enamels fired on fine silver. The items include necklaces, earrings and bracelets in a range of colors. For nearly 20 years she has been doing cloisonné enameling including a recent Lifetime Achievement Award given to photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt in August 1995.
Kenneth Pillsworth has a background in fine art painting. While attending college at New Paltz he worked for several jewelry designers assembling and finishing their work.
