"Outstanding craftsmanship and refined design" is what immediately comes to mind whenever I see new jewelry creations posted by Eileen Freeman. The beauty of her work and the elegance of her craftsmanship establish a solid foundation upon which she successfully builds pieces that are not only aesthetically satisfying, but also functional.
Her designs clearly show her concern for the wearability of her creations, as she consistently strives to make jewelry that is comfortable to wear. For example, the extension chain that she devised to lengthen the Egyptian link necklace is both attractive and practical.
Not only does Eileen enjoy working with copper to create jewelry objects that are characterized by the rich, warm color of this metal; she also experiments with fabrics and yarn as you will see among her beautiful pieces below.
