Sandy Ryter is a unique jewelry designer who has incorporated her fine arts knowledge from the Massachusetts College of Art with her vast travel and cultural experiences. She likes to call her award- winning jewelry "wearable sculpture". Sandy's greatest influence comes from the fashion icon, Iris Apfel who is not afraid to make a spirited statement.

She enjoys travel and volunteering her time for a local art organization.
