Marti Brown was always interested in the arts. As a child, some of her fondest memories included art camp, painting in her basement, art classes in summer school, and involvement in choral music. Marti became a professional artist and craftsman after completing her BFA in jewelry making. She has been designing jewelry for over 30 years and loves creating jewelry and teaching. Marti teaches through videos at Jewelry Making Professor, at the Innovative Bead Expos, and in her own studio in Frenchtown, New Jersey.
Marti works in a variety of traditional and contemporary jewelry metals and processes; currently working in niobium, a colorful metal, and of course beads. She is constantly looking for new sources of inspiration and has added beadweaving, Viking knit, polymer clay, felting, and PMC bead making to her techniques.
Marti is a founding member of the Delaware Valley Bead Society encompassing Hunterdon County in New Jersey and Bucks County in Pennsylvania.
