Émilie Mulcahey was born just outside the northern industrial city of Cleveland, Ohio, but spent the majority of her youth in rural North Carolina. Trained as a jeweler, she constantly questions the role of accessories as functional objects. Mulcahey has worked as an independent jeweler in Richmond, VA and co-heads the collaborative art group, Collab-A-Craft. In 2014 she co-curated the online social media campaign #ThisIsABrooch and was selected as an Emerging Artist for the American Craft Council Hip Pop Program. Currently Émilie is an artist in residence at Craft Alliance Center of Art + Design in St. Louis.
