Andrea Barrier designs and makes etched copper and sterling wire jewelry in her Southern Chester County Studio. The copper is acid etched with hand drawn designs and then formed into earrings, bracelets and necklaces using semi-precious stones. The natural designs from the stones are repeated when possible. The sterling silver wire art components are hand formed, hammered and then assembled into one of a kind jewelry pieces using natural stone or handmade glass. Her goal is to make jewelry which is delicate, whimsical and fun to wear.
She is a member of the Oxford Art Alliance and the Newark Art Alliance as well as the PA Guild of Craftsmen and President of the Chester County Craft Guild. In addition she has been a professional costume designer for over 30 years. When not making jewelry she can be found working in her garden or designing costumes for regional theaters.
