Eileen O’Shea

A small home studio on Mercer Island in Washington State is where I work, influenced by the organic shapes and colors of nature in the Pacific Northwest. I have been working with metals and enamels for over 10 years in my pursuit of creating art jewelry. Photography helps me with my creative process so I take lots of photos and have a very active Instagram account.
