Paula Crevoshay has attracted award-winning attention from the beginning of her career. She graduated with honors from VCU in Richmond Virginia and won a full scholarship to the University of Wisconsin where she earned her Master of Arts degree in 1977. Marrying the Fulbright Scholar, George Crevoshay, in 1978 she moved to India for three years and was given two one woman shows of her paintings and sculptures. The British Council of the Arts collected several of these works.

Having been inspired by the antiquity of Asia, She returned to America in 1981 where she launched her first collection of one-of-a-kind art jewels. Her awards and achievements took her, as a jeweler, very quickly to the fore front of modern design. Combining the disciplines of fine art, gemology and history with jewelry making transformed Crevoshay into a fresh, unique talent. In recent years she has gained renown as one of the leading designers of our time. Her work has been shown at such museums as the Smithsonian and the Carnegie, among others, as an exemplar of the very best, and it can be found in many important public and private collections.

Paula Crevoshay is such a light and has been compared to Lalique and Faberge. She is among the best of our generation. The qualities that exemplify her work are: Most Crevoshay jewels are completely hand crafted in 18K. Many of the ancient and labor-intensive techniques are little used today. A typical piece may incorporate bezel setting, multiple finishes, piercing, granulation and hand engraving.
