Working In the Studio - Behind the Scenes

Hi there! Welcome to my little studio set-up in Brooklyn, NY where the magic happens :) and where I've been basically living for the past month as I nearly finish my new collection for the springtime.  Working through the designs from sketching on paper to carving in the wax is a true passion of mine.  Like all passions though, it is mixed of highs and lows, like surfing the waves of love and challenge.  I'm excited to say that I'm almost done and that pieces will be available by March 15! (Well hopefully! I'll be working my butt off until then ;) )

A look at my desk (it never looks this clean when I'm actually at work!) 


A sneak peak into my sketch book, where some of the ideas are born..


The beginnings of the carving process! And how the desk looks when I'm at work. Wax EVERYWHERE!


Here is one of the rings in it's stage of being carved from wax..


That same ring, after it's been casted, cleaned and polished!  My favorite part!


One of the bracelets freshly carved..


Trying out the handmade porcelain spikes, before they get fired in the kiln..


Giving this little baby a cleaning now that it's been casted into bronze..


Before + after being cleaned up and polished!


YIPPEEEE! 

What do you guys think? Which is your favorite so far?  I'd love to hear your feedback and comments :)
