Molly’s journey into metalsmithing began over four decades ago when she lived in England studying traditional European techniques. When Molly returned to the United States in 1981, she continued her education at Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina and The Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts in Tennessee. Molly became a full time jeweler and a member of the Southern Highland Craft Guild in 1996 in Asheville, North Carolina. She continues to be a full time jeweler and educator, fabricating jewelry mainly in sterling silver.
