About Instructor: Elizabeth b. HainesScreenshot 2017-03-16 17.33.29
Elizabeth b. Haines blends her passion for color and the garden with her flair for wearable art. Elizabeth b.’s talent lies not only in the unique stones but the combination of colors and metals she chooses. Moss aquamarine, blue topaz, creamy pearls, green garnets are only a few of the many stones she uses to blend fashion with art. Her jewels are collectible classics that can be worn singly or layered other necklaces or bracelets. If you are familiar with any of her pieces, she tends to create very delicate “girly girl” jewelry, many necklaces are made to layer with one another. In sterling silver, 14kt gold-filled, bronze or copper, they are imbued with meaning and can be dressed up or down and worn all seasons. Elizabeth b. hails from New Orleans and has lived in Asia, California and now Pennington.
