About the Artist

Artist’s Statement

Surrounded by the beauty that is the Hudson Valley, I am constantly inspired to bring components together in a way that enhances the natural beauty of each stone, pearl and bead.  I pay close attention to the details of each piece, carefully selecting what is incorporated into each design. My contemporary twist on classic, elegant design has created a loyal and growing following.

When one of my pieces touches someone emotionally, when a certain piece is "perfect" in the eyes of a customer; when my customers picture themselves wearing one of my pieces to a special occasion - it is then that I am rewarded in the most personal way.

Artist’s Bio

A graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology, Patti Misener has always had a talent for art and design. 

"I have always been involved in some kind of creative pursuit. Having lived in various places throughout the United States, my path eventually led me back to metropolitan NY, where I settled in the Hudson Valley. I love this part of New York. I find incredible natural beauty and inspiration here.  While studying to become a Reiki practitioner, I began to learn about the different metaphysical properties of crystals and gemstones. This motivated me to begin creating meaningful jewelry. I carefully design my pieces in a way that enhances the pure beauty, spirituality and sensuality of each gemstone and pearl.”

Born and raised in the Throgs Neck section of the Bronx, Joe Parisi always loved art and poetry, creating useful and beautiful objects from many different mediums.

“A powerful connection with nature and a love of the outdoors also lured me to the Hudson Valley. While attending an art festival, I found myself mesmerized while watching a silver jewelry artist at work.  This discovery sparked my creativity. I began to seek out and study with distinguished jewelry artists, setting up my own studio as I went. Recently retired from 30 years as a NYC Union electrician, I am now able to devote myself full time to this art.  My style is strongly influenced by my background and my connection to nature: the past and the present. It is continuously evolving as I discover and master different techniques.

The universe drew these two artists together – each with the same love of nature, creative vision and dream.

“It was not long before our individual passions would ignite a spark of creativity between us! Our jewelry designs blend our personal styles together into a unique collection of beautiful, contemporary and wearable art. Together, we create elegant and inspired pieces for women and men of all ages.”
