Hattie Weselyk jewelry artisan and owner of Hattie Weselyk Studio
Born into a family of artists, creativity was ingrained in Hattie from a very young age as she explored her creativity through several different artistic disciplines. As a young child Hattie began her intensive training in ballet. At the age of 14, she was accepted into the prestigious School of American Ballet, Juilliard School, NYC. Drawing from her experiences in the artistry of dance, Hattie evolved into a recognized sculptor with her work exhibited in galleries and shows. "I loved sculpture but something was missing. I needed something more."
Hattie's eagerness to grow and expand as an artist blossomed into her crafting jewelry. "Being self-taught in jewelry has allowed me to cultivate my own unique style without outside influence. I don't plan any of my pieces. I just start. My designs are constantly changing as I mature through life. My work is an extension of me."
Hattie works and resides in her 18th century farmhouse studio in the quaint historic town of Unionville, Pennsylvania with her wonderfully supportive husband and three beautiful children.
Christine Bradley Chenitz, jewelry artisan
Christine has been a passionate collector of jewelry for her entire life, and over the years has developed a vast knowledge of antique jewelry. This passion developed into a side business of curating antique jewelry. This love of jewelry evolved into a desire to create her own artistic pieces and Christine began her education into jewelry making with the one-and-only Hattie Weselyk. Christine has gone on to become proficient in a variety of jeweler's skills, favoring the art of lost wax casting which she uses extensively in the pieces she and her husband create for their jewelry business, Crestfallen Silver.
