Color is what it's about. Teresa embraces the entwined hues and shades of fleeting moments that she experiences everyday. Shadows at twilight, mist in the forest, a graffitied train passing in a downpour, or the floating colors that appear behind closed eyes. She "sees in color." These colors are layered and blended to make jewelry to complement not one piece of the wardrobe, but many.
Teresa's creations include beads and baubles from bygone eras. These luscious finds are combined with studio-dyed bone, horn, and resins, hand-sculpted stoneware beads that are fired in-house, as well as glass and stone.
Teresa Goodall designs are knotted, wrapped, and made to order by a small talented crew of artisans in Minneapolis. We thank you for appreciating our work. We hope you enjoy our timeless jewelry for years to come.
Raised in rural Minnesota, Teresa is a self-taught jewelry designer. Her parents encouraged her creative interests from an early age. Teresa's father had vast acres of salvaged cars. She would go through the old cars for treasure to be used in her early jewelry creations.
Formal training at the University of Minnesota's design department was cut short by her desire to go into business for herself. The first wholesale line was offered to retailers in the spring of 1983.
