Robin was trained as an artist and designer at The Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. While at FIT, she worked on Seventh Avenue before branching out on her own. She designed clothing and accessories under her label, ROBINA, for stores such as Bloomingdale’s and Henri Bendel.
She is a gifted designer and has created jewelry for galleries, such as Krueger Gallery in NYC, and accessories and crafts for Woman’s Day and Ladies’ Home Journal Magazines. She had an interior design firm for over twenty years, working on residential and commercial projects until she relocated to Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Drawn to the artists community and the beauty of the New Mexico landscape, she worked in art galleries and as an assistant buyer of accessories for Block Mercantile and Santa Fe Modern. She is a dedicated jeweler, working in silver, gold, and semi-precious stones as well as naturally-shed deer antler.
She shows locally and at The Artistic Framer in Osterville, MA.
Robin takes inspiration from the natural side of the Southwest. She mixes traditional gold and semiprecious stones with bone, naturally-shed deer antler, and more to create a unique expression of the beautiful world around us. In particular, we’re happy to feature the custom, jingle earrings she made for our HipSilver CEO, Gail Bruce which have accompanied her for many ceremonial practices.
