Society Hill was founded in 2004 by designer and metalsmith Christine Bartoletta. Christine has always been interested in adornment as a form of self-expression. She paints and sculpts with wire, sheet and stone to capture the world around her. Drawing inspiration from the seasons and the ever changing, fashion and antiquity also influence Christine’s work. Each piece she creates is an original or part of a limited edition series.


Christine’s studio is part workshop, part gallery and the heart of her creative practice. "I’ve been making jewelry most of my life and I have always had some kind of creative space wherever I have lived."

All jewelry, sculpture and objects are made by Christine in her Virginia studio. She primarily works with recycled metals, natural stones and pearls.
