Jacqueline ventured into the realm of wearable art in 2003 and displayed her work for the first time at the October 2004 Sea Glass Festival which was started by seARTS in Rockport, MA.. Inspired by her husband Michael and their mutual passion for history and antique glass collecting, she decided to combine her business and creative skills. Recognizing an unfilled niche for high quality, custom designed hair accessories, she began to pull together pieces of sea glass and pottery found along the seashores of Cape Ann. Since that time, she has created a full collection of hair accessories and jewelry supplementing her sense of design with classes at Montserrat, the deCordova, and Snow Farm.
Jacqueline became a member of the Cape Ann Artisans Studio Tour in 2013. Her work is found in many boutiques & galleries and has been featured in the Art New England, Boston Globe, Cape Ann Magazine, the Cape Ann Beacon, and North Shore Magazine among others. In 2008, Jacqueline’s work appeared prominently in A Passion for Sea Glass, the latest book by author Carole Lambert. Jacqueline was a founder of the seARTS Wearable Arts group and designed annual holiday shows for 8 years, then launching a runway show, Celebrate Wearable Art in 2011. She has chaired CWA since its inception in 21013, 2015, and 2017.
