Graphic, geometric, and precision-oriented, Boo Poulin's work incorporates sterling silver, semi-precious stones, and steel cable into the context of jewelry. Poulin deliberately combines precious and non-precious materials and merges industrial technology with traditional handcrafting techniques. She aims to extend the traditional parameters of the jewelry object as well as express a personal aesthetic.
Boo studied with Albert Paley and later received her MFA from RIT College of Art and Design, School for American Crafts. She opened a design and production studio in 1983 and actively maintains it today.
