Precious Metal Clay Pendant by Mona Reeva

Mona Reeva began her career in human services and worked at a variety of venues while raising a family and doing extensive travel. She continued her education and obtained Masters Degrees in Social Work and Public Health and a PhD in Counseling Psychology. After a long work life which included teaching at graduate and post graduate levels in clinical psychology, having a private psychotherapy practice, holding administrative positions and a year spent in Dalian, China teaching English as a Second language, she retired in 2005 to spend time exploring creative interests and activities.

Mona discovered her creative side and began by making bead jewelry.

From there her evolving creativity took her into new mediums and directions incorporating more metals and metal clay into her art. Dr. Reeva has studied with David Cassella at the Academy of Art in San Francisco and with Steve Smith and Aimee Gollant at The Crucible in Oakland. She continues to study with Hadar Jacobson in the art of metal clay jewelry.

She has held Open Studios yearly since 2007 and has sold her unique and one of a kind pieces that include jewelry, hand knit scarves, photographic images and blank photo note cards. She has exhibited with Pro Arts in the past. Currently Mona’s jewelry can be seen in Sausalito at Studio 333 and Downtown 333.

Much of Mona Reeva’s work can be viewed on her website at www.greenmountainartistry.com, and on Facebook, Google +, Link’dIn and Flickr. She writes monthly newsletters that highlight her new work, interests and lists her upcoming events.
