Jill Marsh is a Bay Area Jewelry designer living in Berkeley, California. She has been creating jewelry for over 20 years and after many years in the corporate world decided it was time to follow her passion for jewelry design. The blue ocean and rustic mountains of the Bay Area inspire in her an appreciation for natural materials and the juxtaposition of delicate versus rugged. Her work with silver, leather, fine gems, and semi-precious stones help to create this aesthetic. Jill’s latest collection incorporates leather, freshwater pearls, and turquoise. She prefers making one-of-a-kind pieces and is willing to work with small businesses to collaborate on collections specialized for their environments!

Dara Rosenwasser began her love of making and creating in high school where she started a small business selling handmade hats and jewelry to her circle of friends. Years later, after a decade-long stint as a touring musician, she received her MFA in photography from the San Francisco Art Institute. She has worked as a professional photographer since 2006, and continues to exhibit her work on a national level. Here are few words from Dara about her work:
“Antiquated photographic processes allow me to explore the spaces between the tangible and intangible boundaries of memory. In my current exhibit, I investigate reactions through the elements of camera-less exposure and hand-crafted seascapes in these Cyanotype works.”
