About SAlly O’Neill

Sally O'Neill started working with copper and enamel when she was a young teen inspired by her “blacksmith” father.   As a high-school student, she designed, made and sold her jewelry in Santa Fe, NM.    She continued her passion and interest in working with metals throughout her college years at the University of Colorado, Universidad de Sevilla in Spain, and University of New Mexico where she earned her BAFA in Metals.   She has had a working studio since the age of 15.   She is influenced by the Art Deco, Art Nouveau and Edwardian eras.   Her unique and timeless designs have sold in galleries in New Mexico, Colorado and Montana.

Sally is a GIA Graduate Gemologist (GG) and a Member of the National Association of Jewelry Appraisers (NAJA).    She attends classes and workshops whenever possible to continue learning.
