Elizabeth Best

Elizabeth Best earned a BA from Paterson State College in Art Education and her MS in Studio Art/ Printmaking from Indiana State University.

She met her husband John on their first day teaching in Montclair, NJ, where she taught art and John taught music.

Elizabeth’s early jewelry work was in metals; later she combined metals with glass, employing techniques like lampwork and fusing. Elizabeth and John established Best Studios and for over 35 years have appeared together at more than 20 juried craft shows a year. Their work is exhibited in galleries around the country and has been shipped all over the world.

Betti and John retired from teaching and live in Wellfleet. “One of a kind, one at a time” is the Best Studios motto.
