Glenda Skarie was born and raised in Puerto Rico. She received a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from the University of Wisconsin.
Glenda currently lives in Florida where she creates one-of-a-kind wearable art using metal clay. Her journey began as a child going though her mother’s jewelry box and trying to find out how things were constructed and how to fix the broken ones. She has been designing and creating jewelry for more than 15 years. She also teaches workshops in her private studio in Pembroke Pines, Florida.
Glenda began working with PMC in 2008 under the instruction of Linda Kline. She is a certified PMC Artisan under the instruction of Mary Ann Devos.
Jewelry design and creation is her passion. Whatever she does in life, art is always a part of it. The inspiration for her creations comes from life experiences and the performance of many artists she admires. Her motivation is about what she will create rather than what she created. All her work is handmade, feminine, and unique.
