Cathy Heinz Designs
I want my jewelry to be fresh, interesting, beautifully crafted, and unique: a reflection of my personal desire to continually learn and grow as an artist. I seek out new skills and techniques that will improve my pieces and lead to deeper creative insights. My body of work is constantly evolving with new designs and materials. I feel that my jewelry has a modern feel that still retains a feminine, timeless quality. For me, design needs to be clean, workable: the elegant solution. Every piece is designed and handcrafted in my Maine studio.
An important part of my work is custom design. Many of my customers want to purchase original, creative, one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry. I love the challenge of working with them to bring their ideas to life in new and beautiful ways. I also specialize in vintage jewelry redesign, such as taking a gemstone from an unwanted or uninteresting piece and giving it an updated, contemporary look. It’s a fun and exciting process to watch the design unfold – my customers love it!
