I am a featured artist on Meet the Maker by the American Made Show! This winter the American Made show takes place in Washington DC, and I’m thrilled to be showing my collection there. You can view my events page for dates and booth details.
Creating a productive shared studio space is not as easy as throwing a handful of jewelers into a room to see what shakes out. We knew our mission was not an easy one, so I take some serious pride in the shop that Luana, Sharon, and I have created together. The buildout took lots of communication, patience and a healthy dose of elbow grease before she was up and running.
Last month SF Made visited our new studio, Goldlight Jewelers, to see how we three local manufacturers were making it happen. SF Made is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to stimulate our local economy by fostering the growth of the manufacturing sector in San Francisco. Their recent blog article gives a great rundown of our advice to fellow makers who are thinking of co-leasing a new studio space.
As a jewelry lover and maker, I’ve long adored the blog Jewelry Fashion Tips. Amy’s quick wit and undeniable jewelry sense makes her blog a super fun read. This week I was just tickled to see her review of the Gallery of Jewels Summer of Love Bridal Event and find this photo of her wearing the new Green Diamond Empire Engagement Ring. Thanks so much for the nod, Amy! You always wear diamonds so well…
Those in the Jewelry Biz know that JCK is a must-read for industry trends and happenings. That’s why we were stoked for our Berkeley retailer Zaver & Mor’s nod in Stores We Adore (July/August 2013). Read the full article here and check out our bronze spine cuff featured as one of their ‘standout pieces’!
This week Racked released this darling article on our friends Alexei and Marie, owners of Fiat Lux in San Francisco. In case you missed my previous write up on the 250 square foot jewel box and it’s rad owners, this interview truly reveals the vision of the dynamic duo. Spotting our fragment rings only made it that much sweeter. Congrats guys!
Taking a look back at some great press from earlier this year. We were so honored to receive a nod in this Valentine’s roundup by Daily Candy featuring great SF-made gifts. The bronze spine cuff makes a stellar treat-yo-self gift for those who take holiday gifting into their own hands.
My biggest thanks to Refinery29, Joanna Riedl, and Gallery of Jewels San Francisco for including me in this fantastic roundup of Bay Area Jewelers! You can view the full article here.
My Spine Necklace got some love this week on Totus Mel’s WunderKammer!
This truly unique piece was created from my original wax carving, cast in sterling silver, and whitened to give it a matte bone look. Also available in bronze with a stippled finish.
