The Team

Working at Betsy Frost Design is a group effort, and our success is due to our fabulous team. 

JO-ANN    |    KIM    |    DONNA

Jo-Ann

Jo-Ann is our “jack of all trades” and is good at making pretty much everything.  She is also the keeper of the “studio bible” (which details directions for making each piece of jewelry) and is our “go to girl” for inventory control, QC, and overall studio organization. She is a darn good saleswoman!

  • Favorite Studio Snack: Chocolate
  • Favorite Item to Make: Equestrian Collection Bracelet
  • Secret Weapon: If there is a procedure that needs to be done more efficiently, Jo-Ann figures out it and implements it!

 

Kim

Kim is our “go to girl” for everything at the bench.  She can solder anything together and is the first assistant to help Betsy make her prototypes.  She is fearless and accepts any challenge thrown her way.  She can also get a perfect
polish on any surface!

  • Favorite Studio Snack: Hot Chocolate
  • Favorite Item to Make: Lotus Collection Pieces
  • Secret Weapon: Kim is a rock star bartender!

Terri Unger | photographer | journalist

Terri has worked for the past 25 years as a portrait artist and photojournalist in the greater Boston area. Her photographs and articles have appeared in Boston Magazine, the Boston Globe, North Shore Magazine, Ipswich Neighbors Magazine and others. As an extension of her community work, she published a book, People and Place: Oral Histories and Portraits of Ipswich Seniors, in part through a grant from Mass Humanities.

Terri's love of photography was born from the magical Kodachrome slide shows she experienced as a child with her family in their living room. She loved the smell of the pop up

screen and the dust particles dancing in and out of the light beam, which projected images of intimacy and human connection. These moments impacted her deeply and inspired her work as an artist. Relationships remain a primary focus of her work.

When Terri's not shooting, she's hiking wooded New England trails, biking on the picturesque back roads of the north shore, picking vegetables at the farm, hanging with friends, and trying to be the best mother possible to her two sons.
