If you come into to PSG this week you may notice that our jewelry studio seems to have disappeared…! Not to worry jewelers, we carved you out a beautiful new dedicated space that I think you will love! AND as a result, we were able to enlarge the wood shop space. Just in time too as the wood shop has been getting some heavy use lately!
We moved the jewelry studio to a cleaner and quieter location in the back (rather than having it right between the wood and metal shops!) All 8 work bench stations are accessible and we’ll be making some improvements to the process stations as well, including a larger soldering area, a better casting set up and more! A big thanks to Gus for all his hard work on this and to Phil and Jeff for helping to move everything over!
I am not a typical girly girl (says the girl who is starting a shop space…big surprise there, I’m sure) and don’t swoon over jewelry very often. I am more likely to appreciate a well made piece, then be on my way. But there are some pieces that stop me for a bit longer and make me want them…and usually these pieces are very sculptural…For example, Jess of BloodMilk (below) makes beautiful pieces that I love and wear almost daily (I have on ‘the one you feed’ right now).
(top image) who I found on Pinterest via Jess, makes these amazing carved brooches, like the one above, that while I may not wear it, I’d be happy to display it in my house as a piece of art. I also saw the image below on her blog and while it’s more about productivity (she’ll eventually cut them apart, it was just faster to carve them this way) I loved seeing the process shot.
Anyone out there have any other favorites? Or make jewelry that is sculptural or sculpture that is also jewelry?
