You're Invited to the Studio

Want to see what's been going on here in the studio this week? My husband built this custom workbench last weekend and I've been loving it ever since. Pictured below are the chevron necklace pieces I'm working on finishing up to enamel on later today.

In the next couple weeks I'll be revealing the transformation of my studio from a place with no walls, insulation, ceiling, lights, to a place where I LOVE spending creative time. 

What do you look for in a creative space? I have to have light. It's #1 in my creative world. Even before heating/cooling. Working with color (enamel and oil painting), having ample natural daylight is critical. It also ensures I feel closer to the natural world. Thanks, windows! 

How is Enfuse Jewelry created?

Welcome to the jewelry studio! Here's a sneak peek at the beginning of a necklace, which starts with a sawed copper base. With fusing glass to metal, there are many steps between the beginning and completion of each piece of Enfuse Jewelry

After sawing the copper, it's time to drill, file, and prepare it for applying and firing the enamel. Don't tell sawing... but enameling is my favorite part of the process since it introduces color to the jewelry. All jewelry is individually handcrafted in my Colorado studio so the beginning of your jewelry looks like the above image and you're sure to get something unique and beautiful every time.
