Sherri Dhyan first majored in metal arts at the Parsons School of Design in New York City. Beginning her art career as bench jeweler on 47th street in the jewelry district of New York City, for the Gloria Vanderbilt jewelry line. During the 80’s, she also worked in New York City assisting goldsmith Steven Verbel of Brooklyn, NY while continuing her jewelry education in a school specializing in ancient jewelry metalsmithing at the “Jewelry Arts Institute”, training directly under Bessie Jamieson and later Myron Bikakis.
Maintaining a personal love and desire for ancient jewelry, Sherri continued her passion creating pieces for herself, friends and family. This snowballed into a part time business. She established herself in “Master Touch Gallery” in the small town of Makawao on the island of Maui in 1996. Falling in love with Hawaii, Sherri moved to Maui, a few months later. Within a year Sherri opened her own gallery and sculpture garden in a “funky little” plantation style building in Keokea, upcountry Maui. From the Slopes of Haleakala to the beach town of Paia, Studio22k was established in 2013 a showcase for Sherri’s jewelry and that of like minded goldsmiths.
