About The Artist: Valerie A. Heck
Valerie's goal is to take the initiative and make history. To paraphrase Leonardo (the artist, not the turtle), things do not happen to Valerie. Valerie happens to things.
Valerie has been featured in the book "Wrap, Stitch, Fold and Rivet" by Lark Books, Niche Magazine, American Style Magazine, Art Jewelry Magazine, and JQ Magazine. Valerie is also a Top 10 Halstead Grant Finalist and a 2015 Niche Awards Finalist.
Valerie is based in America's manufacturing heartland, Northeast Ohio. Valerie was the first student to complete the metalsmithing honors program at Towson University, where she graduated summa cum laude. Valerie studied with Blaine Lewis at the New Approach School for Jewelers, where she completed the Graduate Bench Jeweler Program.
