Judith Neugebauer has worked as a jeweler since 1974. Prior to this, she was trained in classical ballet, having studied extensively with the American Ballet Theater in NYC. She performed professionally in the Ballet Corp at Radio City Music Hall in NYC and with the New Jersey Ballet Company, as well as in musical theater productions throughout the country for ten years. "A previous career in classical ballet and theater instilled within me a deep awareness and appreciation for movement, line and balance. These are the classical qualities I have always tried to incorporate into my jewelry designs ... And in my life."
