The artist began making vitreous enameled jewelry during graduate school at Oregon State University, where she earned a Master’s in ecology in 2008. Besides enjoying the beautiful combination of colorful glass and metal, she found enameled jewelry making rewarding because of its simplicity and uniqueness. Crafting was initially a stress relief but she found that she enjoyed teaching too, and did so for two years at the university’s craft center. After being encouraged to try selling her work, she formed Ten Rivers Jewelry and was happy to find success. From her home studio in North Carolina, she now specializes in rustic enamel and copper jewelry. Corinne grew up in Arizona and you can see vestiges of the southwest in her work, as well as an influence from the natural southern flora and fauna she lives in today.
