Courtney Berry Peterson grew up in New Orleans, LA and taught English and French to High School students after graduating from the University of New Orleans.

Lee Peterson grew up in Old Lyme , CT - the younger son of Roger Tory Peterson - and wrote the Peterson Field Guide to Edible Wild Plants after graduating from Johns Hopkins University.

They met on a PM Magazine shoot in the swamps of Louisiana, and united after a year of correspondence and visits.

Having come from varied back grounds to a 200 year old farm in Southeastern Pennsylvania, Courtney & Lee have created a studio that is producing very detailed natural history designs, as well as abstract ones. Using Sterling Silver, Brass, Copper and 14k Gold the hand worked pin/pendants, bracelets, and earrings have won the hearts of many longtime loyal customers.

"It seems we have touched an emotional feeling in our pieces that evokes an older kinder place in time", say Courtney. We do normal pieces: Bugs, birds, dogs, leaves, reptiles, horses, etc. but we also have fun with a bit of ironic tongue and cheek goofy pieces that appeal to an audience that is not inspired by the "normal stuff".

In the past Courtney has done specific pieces for groups such as The Womens' International Sailboat Races in Annapolis, MD, Mardi Gras Krewes in New Orleans, Boston Museum of Art, The National Colonial Dames, as well as many others.

We have the ability to create designs to fit the "look" and the pocket book of people needing large multiples for applications ranging from benefits to balls.
