Elizabeth Copeland (1866-1957), apparently took her first art class in her thirtieth year at Cowles Art School in Boston. In her last year, a fellow classmate, Sarah Choate Sears, (a founder of the Society of Arts and Crafts) became a patron and adviser. In 1908 Miss Copeland was sponsored to tour European museums. Supposedly she studied in London under the expert enamelist Alexander Fisher. She is also known for her jewelry creations. In 1903 her work was included at the annual Arts and Crafts Exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago. In 1915 she won a bronze medal at the Panama-Pacific Exposition and in 1916 a Medalist award from the Boston Society of Arts and Crafts. She worked at her own studio on Boylston Street from about 1903, until her retirement in 1937. She consigned objects and jewelry to the Detroit Society of Art and Crafts. Her work is exhibited in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Art Intitute, Chicago, the Yale University Art Gallery, as well as in other venues.
