I am a writer in print, radio, television, and new media. I’ve worked on air/camera as a jewelry authority on radio and television. My first book, BROOCHES: TIMELESS ADORNMENT was published in 2008 by Rizzoli, and my next book is in the works. I am also a speaker with Random House Speakers Bureau, and do the occasional voice over, or SOT (sound over tape).
Prior to my writing career, I practiced law in the fields of bankruptcy, commercial litigation, real estate, and the arts. My education in period jewelry began at C.W. Post College of Long Island University where I first enrolled in an antiques and art appraisal program, and then later specialized in the study of antique and estate jewelry. Upon completion of my coursework, I interned for two years with my teacher and mentor, Edith Weber, owner of Edith Weber & Associates.
My writing career begin in 2001, as the Estate Jewelry Editor for The Rapaport Diamond Report,. As a freelance writer, my work has appeared in The New York Times, Elle.com, InStyle.com, Reuters.com, Variety, and Palm Beach Illustrated. In March 2007, I launched this website. It has been a labor of love ever since.
In the recent past, I’ve was a reoccurring guest on Martha Stewart Radio’s Morning Living (Sirius112 /XM 157), and on February 8, 2010, I was a guest on MARTHA where I got the chance to work with Martha Stewart. We taped two Valentine’s Day segments, and if you would like to view them, they can be accessed on my website. This year I submitted challenge ideas for PROJECT ACCESSORY, and auditioned for two new antiques and artifacts reality shows. I’m always interested in new projects and welcome professional inquiries.
