Art by any Means Jewelry is designed by Vanessa Gilbert in her Gloucester, Massachusetts studio. Her education and background in the fine arts inspires her, which is evident in her use of highly evolved color pallet to create distinctive compositions. Her knowledge of beads and gemstones has been evolving since 1988, and through her work she has created new connections in form, color and design. Fifteen years in this art form has allowed her to expand her vast resources and continually enables her to find the newest most exotic beads and gemstones as they become available to the market. Earring Girl especially loves their use of freshwater pearls.
