Edie studied metal and jewelry design at the Tyler School of Art. In 1986, she maintained a studio in the Northern Liberties section of Philadelphia in a renovated warehouse converted into art studios, an inspiring environment shared by other jewelers, architects, painters and photographers. 


Over the next dozen years, she exhibited her work in national juried craft shows including the American Craft Council Baltimore, the Smithsonian Craft Show, and the American Craft at the Armory Show in New York City featuring one-of-a-kind and-limited edition works. Edie’s jewelry has been sold in fine craft galleries and museum shops around the country.


Inspiration for her work is drawn from shapes and textures found in urban and organic elements; city architecture, wrought iron grates, wheel hub spokes, gears, fabric, flowers, and seed pods.


Today Edie works in her home studio in a small town just outside the city, and thrives on the varied creativity of her family of artists; her husband, Chuck, and their son and daughter.
