About the Artist

Althea creates beautiful, meticulously detailed jewelry using cuttlebone-casting combined with hand fabrication techniques. She works in both silver and gold and incorporates a wide variety of stones, from turquoise to pearls. The daughter of two jewelers, her life initially took a different direction when she worked for the Indian Health Services for almost 20 years. After she married Joe in 2005, she was inspired to explore her own creativity and started studying jewelry-making with Fritz Casuse. Now a full-time artist, she says “My experience in creating jewelry is that I am continually learning who I am and what I can do.”
