About the Artist:

Bridgette L. Rallo of Greenwoods Studio makes handcrafted art jewelry. She began her affair with art jewelry in earnest as a high school student, making pieces for herself and her friends until a visiting artist noticed the quality of design and attention to detail Rallo incorporated into her work.

In exchange for lessons in painting, she began an offhanded apprenticeship with the Italian artist, Paula Wolfson. She studied metalsmithing and Precious Metal Clay (PMC) techniques with prize-winning jewelry artist Susan Lewis of Metalmorphosis Studio in Dania, FL, PMC techniques with Vera Lightstone of Lightstone Studios in Manhattan and various jewelry-making techniques with well known instructors at the Brookfield Craft Center in Brookfield, Connecticut, including Robert Dancik and CeCe Wire.

Bridgette was the advanced PMC columnist for BeadBugle.com, an online jewelry trade magazine, for two years before deciding to spend all of her time creating jewelry and teaching in her studio in Norfolk. Bridgette Rallo is a member of the PMC Guild (Level Two) and of The Society of North American Goldsmiths (SNAG).
