Elizabeth Garvin graduated with honors from New York University in 1986, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree, with further studies at Parsons School of Design and Massachusetts College of Art. Garvin is exhibited internationally in many galleries and museum stores as an example of contemporary design in wearable art.

Garvin creates forms with classic elegance and enduring quality while integrating various techniques and, at times, parting with tradition as a part of her overall design concept. Each piece of jewelry is handmade in her New York studio. Applying various techniques of patterning and finishing, each piece is playfully graphic, yet sensibly made. Her approach to designing form, engineering movement, and developing techniques often draws as much from architecture and industrial design as from the traditional craft of jewelry making. Geometry and industrial elements are most recognizable in her designs.
