Eva Eisler was trained at the Bauhaus, where the educational program emphasized good, affordable design in all aspects of everyday life. She married an architect, and together they came to New York City, where they continue to live and work today. At the beginning of her career in the United States, Eisler spoke little English and had two small children. Making jewelry enabled her to work from home. Today, she draws, makes clothing, and designs furniture and sculpture, but continues to experiment primarily in jewelry.
