Designer NADINE FIDELMAN was born in Philadelphia, PA and has lived in Honolulu, Hawaii, San Diego, Malibu and Santa Monica, CA. She received a Bachelor of Science and Master’s Degree in teaching. Nadine taught elementary-age children and peer teachers for 15 years. In 1996, Nadine and her husband moved to the Asheville, North Carolina area to raise their then young son.
After retiring early from teaching, Nadine took basic and advanced wire wrapping classes with a local artist. She quickly took her art in a completely different direction with metal-smithing classes at “A Jewelers Way” in Clyde, NC and at the John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC, as well as precious metal clay (“PMC”) classes at Chevron Beads in Asheville, NC. She was Rio certified in PMC at Two Gather Beads in Anderson, SC and has completed the PMC Connection Level 2 Certification at Arrowmont in Gatlinburg, Tennessee and Level 3 certification at William Holland Lapidary School in Young Harris, Georgia. Nadine has taught classes in wire wrapping pendants and bracelets at various jewelry studios and bead shops. For the past several years, Nadine has also been working with precious metal clay, bronze and copper clay, and has been combining PMC and wire wrapping. All of her pendants, brooches, bracelets and necklaces are one of a kind. She enjoys the challenge of turning your keepsake pieces into a fabulous piece of jewelry.
Working from her home studio, Nadine is able to spend time finding the best gemstones from the world’s top suppliers, she offers unbeatable customer service and spends less time worrying about overhead costs. Because Jewelry By Nadine is a smaller company than major retail chains, she has the freedom to select only the most unique gemstones and stays current on the cutting edge of the jewelry design industry. She does not use any gemstone, nor precious metal that is of a lower quality. She believes that every woman deserves to look her best!
In addition to exhibiting at several shows in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and the Chicago area throughout the year, her beautiful wearable art jewelry can be found at the Kress Emporium and the North Carolina Arboretum in Asheville, NC, Banana Moon in Hendersonville, N.C. as well as The Jewelers’ Workbench in Waynesville, NC.
Nadine, her husband and son live in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina.
