I am a one-woman jewelry studio. Everything from designing and production to fixing equipment is my job. That said, blogging isn't my strongest suit, but I'll do my best to update as I can!
The way I produce my jewelry is more like a farm than an assembly line. I prepare the soil (design all the pieces), then plant the seeds (carve waxes), then watch them grow (casting, molding masters, stone setting), and finally harvest (finish & photo) all at once. So, instead of little bits here and there, or a few finished pieces a week, it's more like a slow-growing bumper crop! Many may not find that process particularly appealing from a visual standpoint, but I do. So I'll share that from time to time.
Case in point: At this moment, I'm working on three dozen rings, about a dozen pairs of earrings and about as many pendants, which will all be cast together. I have sapphires and tourmalines and all sorts of other sparkly goodies on the way for an entire line's worth of work. I can't wait to see them in person! If this process interests you, I post lots of photos on my Instagram (kerinlaurencejewelry).
I'm also rather entrenched in the arts community here in Clackamas County, Oregon. If you plan to take over the world, you have to start somewhere, right? Some of those travails will likely show up here, too.
