Betsy Meyers Green
Betsy Meyers Green has been collecting treasures since she was four. From the shores of Lake Huron during her family’s summer vacations, to travels around the U.S., and near her current home in Louisiana. Betsy has gathered unique stones, pearls, shells, and even unusual found objects like mahjong tiles and old cameos.
Betsy love of all things artful, combined with her continued obsession for collecting objects grew into full-time studies at several art schools. She received her B.F.A. in Metalsmithing and Jewelry Making, and a minor in weaving, from the Center for Creative Studies in Detroit, Michigan. Today Betsy creates one-of-a-kind wearable artworks using sterling silver, 14K and 24K gold, along with natural quartz, gemstones, and many of the objects found throughout her lifetime. Says Betsy, “It’s hard to let so many of my creations go, because each unique piece holds a bit of history.”
