Paula Crevoshay’s art jewelry is celebrated by collectors and museums. Her work is inspired by nature, by the magnificent gems she chooses, and by her background as an artist. Born and bred in Baton Rouge, Crevoshay holds a master’s degree in painting and sculpture from the University of Wisconsin and an undergraduate degree in fine arts from Virginia Commonwealth University. At age 23, after marrying the late Fulbright and Institute of Indian Studies Scholar George Crevoshay, she moved to India, spending the next 15 years traveling and working in Southeast Asia, learning the gem trade and the art of jewelrymaking. She started her own company in 1981, creating one-of-a-kind jewels, and in 1999 settled in a New Mexico mountaintop, surrounded by natural beauty of the landscape that infuses her work as well.
Paula Crevoshay’s work is in many private and public collections, including the Smithsonian Instituion, the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, the museum of the Gemological Institute of America. Her recent exhibitions at the LA Natural History Museum, the Musee de Mineralogie Paris and upcoming Perot Museum exhibition in 2020 attest to her accomplishment as an artist and her appeal to viewers and collectors alike.
