Jill Ross, jewelry maker
I am a Native Mainer. I design and metalsmith one-of-a-kind fine jewelry. I work with gold and sterling silver incorporating Maine gems, stones, roman and sea glass. I anneal, wrap, solder, cast, set my own gems/stones, and make all my own findings. I also use techniques of chasing, texturing, oxidizing, and marrying to create my works of art. I have been endorsed by Maine Made America's Best, and I am a member of the United Maine Craftsmen. I have been commissioned to design and metalsmith Maine gems available at The Maine Mineral and Gem Museum located in Bethel.
Moosehead lake has always been a bustling vacation destination since the 1800's. I believe with the festivals and now the artisan cottages, Moosehead Lake and Greenville can offer its vacationers more of the "Maine artisans" experience. Moosehead Lake is one of the most beautiful locations in Maine!
