Brianne Sheridan
Brianne Sheridan was born into an ambitious self-employed family. She was largely raised in Geralyn & Bill's property management office and even asked for her own office for Christmas when she was three. Brianne's professional journey with Geralyn Sheridan Designs started off in part time sales at the Jewelry Box Gallery during high school and throughout her time at Chico State. After several years in her corporate PR & marketing career, the completion of her graduate degree, and feeling some corporate burnout, she decided to return to the family business on both the real estate and the jewelry design sides. Brianne has been residing in the Denver Metro Area since 2016 and is the proud dog mom of three. In her free time, she is a musical theatre lover, craft been enthusiast, and self proclaimed sockey (soccer and hockey) fan.

This wax and technique allow the goldsmith to create flowing sculptural curves with organic, linear texture.
