About the Artist
Tina Dinsmore began designing beautiful jewelry in the mid-1990’s in Tucson, Arizona. A self-taught artist, Tina found her teachers in Native American silversmiths and worked in a jewelry store where she was encouraged to design and sell her own work. Beginning with beaded designs she exhibited at Arts and Crafts festivals, Tina moved to Maine in 2000 where she set up a studio in the Arts District of downtown Portland. Over the years Tina has refined her designs and created the body of simple elegant jewelry she is recognized for today. Passionate about the metaphysical properties of natural earth mined gemstones, their crystal structure formations, and how they resonate with our own bodies, she selects gems from her vast resource of friends and colleagues who are suppliers from around the globe. Tina can now be found at her studio in South Portland, Maine.
