Award winning silversmith, Genevieve Flynn, has been working in precious metals for 44 years creating hollowware and art jewelry family heirlooms. Flynn has been invited to create numerous private commissions, including an intricately chased and engraved hand mirror that was presented to music industry personality, Paula Abdul and a commemorative 1985 World Series pin for the late Ewing Kauffman, then owner of the Kansas City Royals and Marion Laboratories.
With degrees in jewelry design, jewelry repair and hand engraving, Flynn perfected her construction skills while working as a bench jeweler for seven years. Considered a master at pierced metal in her own right, Flynn soon launched into an exploration in hollowware design studying under Heikki Seppa, the modern father of form emphasis through anticlastic and synclastic raising. She went on to study the chasing and repoussé art form working under the Italian master instructor, Fabrizio Acquafresca and Valentin Yotkov, top artists in their field.
