Artist Profile - Jean S. Coffman Artist Profile - Jean S. Coffman

Jean Coffman, Proprietor of Chasing Silver Studio & Gallery, considers herself to be an accidental artist. While always expressing a flair for the creative, she did not find her true calling until, while working at Ed Levin Jewelry as a cleaning woman, she was encouraged by the management to try her hand as a craftsperson. As soon as Jean made her first clasp, she fell in love with metalwork. While there, she was taught the importance of craftsmanship, design and methodology. Since leaving, she worked with Mayfair Jewelers in Scotia before setting out to create and market her own jewelry designs. Jean’s inspiration has always been to create affordable, handcrafted designs that people want to wear daily and make them feel special. She is excited to be a part of the artistic revitalization of Cambridge and feels the region will continue to attract and foster the growth and support of new artists.

Along with nationally acclaimed Ed Levin Designs, Ann Kearney's, TEN (also on Main Street), and Jean’s, Chasing Silver, Cambridge, NY is surely becoming a destination for people interested in purchasing finely crafted and unique jewelry!

Visit Jean’s studio and gallery where you can purchase her work and watch her craft these elegant and affordable designs. Chasing Silver, 1 East Main Street, Cambridge, NY 12816 518-677-3415.
