Marie Scarpa began making jewelry in high school. After earning a BFA in metalsmithing from Syracuse University, she honed her skills working with several San Francisco Bay Area designer jewelers.
Using cast silver and gold needlepoint canvas and fine-gauge wire, Scarpa weaves tiny tapestries embellished with brightly colored gems, beads, and pearls. The unconventional combination of fiber and jewelry techniques lends her work its distinctive look.
