Eileen Baumeister McIntyre
Eileen Baumeister McIntyre finds her inspiration from her extensive organic garden. Working in the garden among the flowers, vegetables, herbs and weeds, she takes time to fill her sketchbook throughout the growing season. Her drawings and paintings have always had a botanical theme, which eventually evolved into the Garden of Silver jewelry line. Many of the jewelry pieces are created by hand carving into wax and then cast into sterling silver. Eileen also etches and embosses the metals to create texture and relief and utilize traditional metalworking techniques.
