Catherine Zdancewic ’05 of BeniFini
As a student, I loved to begin working before the sun had risen; only the light on my bench punctuating the darkness of the room, and the sound of my tools amid the silence. Looking up from my bench, I would watch as the sunrise glittered on Casco Bay like thousands of shimmering diamonds, then I would go back to my work, inspired to make something beautiful that day. My work is simple, classic and delicate. I strive to create jewelry that displays fine design and craftsmanship, and that people feel excited to wear everyday or for a special occasion.
