About

"Garden of Silver Handmade Garden Inspired Jewelry collections reflect my love and inspiration for nature and its elements. I find the shapes and textures of flowers, petals, seeds, vines and leaves aesthetically stimulating throughout every growing season. My jewelry is a celebration of the enduring beauty of nature transformed through precious metals."

Eileen Baumeister McIntyre, Artist/Designer

  

The Inspiration

I have an extensive organic garden that is both serene and stimulating. I find it peaceful to work in the garden and can be found outside among the flowers, vegetables, herbs and weeds with my sketchbook throughout the seasons. Daily walks to the beach have inspired the Oceans collection.  My drawings and paintings have always had botanical and nature themes which have evolved into the Garden of Silver jewelry line.

The Process

I design and create each piece in the Garden of Silver jewelry line in my art/jewelry studio on the north shore of Long Island, New York. My jewelry is created using both fine and sterling silver, gold, diamonds and color has been added to the newest collections through the use of gorgeous colorful gemstones. 

Many of the jewelry pieces are created by hand carving into wax and then cast into sterling silver. I also etch and emboss the metals to create texture and relief and utilize traditional metalworking techniques as well. 

The Designer

Eileen Baumeister McIntyre attended Long Island University/Southampton on an art scholarship, graduating Cum Laude in 1988 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Art Education. She then went on to receive her Masters Degree from State University of New York at Stony Brook in 1991 and continued her studies at The School of Visual Arts in New York, Long Island University/C. W Post, and also taking Botanical Illustration courses at the esteemed New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx. Eileen studied metalworking with a master jeweler for two years.

Eileen is a New York State Certified Art Teacher and has been teaching art in the public school system for 27 years. She currently teaches at the high school level and has been awarded multiple grants to share her jewelry design and entrepreneurial knowledge with her students. Eileen also owned and operated a private art instruction studio for fifteen years which she sold to have time to pursue her own personal artistic vision.
