Based in Raleigh, NC, Tiffany Price Coley draws inspiration from the life experiences, architecture, structures, shapes and textures.
“Ultimately, I make jewelry that I like to wear. Often, I am drawn to a shape that I admire and I start creating pieces which incorporate that shape. Or it’s a texture. I truly enjoy the creative process and at the end of the day, that’s why I continue to do what I do.
Tiffany Coley Artisan Jewelry is a juxtaposition of work that is focused on being industrial yet a little feminine.
Her love of creation started at a young age. She was always fascinated by gemstones, which adorned her grandmother Ruby’s hands. Although she has always created and made things, her love of math and science led her to a career in engineering.
After the birth of her first child, with the help of a supportive husband, she decided to postpone the engineering career and spend time at home with her son. After lots of self-instruction and intensive workshops from artists that she admires, Tiffany Coley Artisan Jewelry has slowly grown from a small hobby into a full-fledged business.
Tiffany can be found working part-time and teaching classes at Ornamentea.com, spending time with her 2 toddlers and husband and stealing away in the studio every moment she can! Create, create, create! Tiffany believes that you should listen to and engage your passions – even if it’s a little bit. And no matter what, always dare to dream. (Then work, work, work!)
