Fun with Wax

I recently hosted a wax carving workshop with SF based Fullosophie in the showroom.  It was so much fun to teach again-it's been awhile!  The students' pieces are being cast as we speak and I (and they)  are very excited to see the awesome results.  If you want to be sure not to miss it next time, sign up to receive our email newsletter.

Fullosophie Wax Carving Workshop

I'm very excited to be hosting a workshop with Fullosophie at the new showroom space in Sausalito.  This will be a really fun way to spend a Sunday!  The class will include:

A studio tour
Brief explanation about wax carving as used in the jewelry making process
All materials and instructions to carve your own pendant in wax
Sarah will have your piece cast in sterling silver or brass
The chain of your choice

When complete, the finished necklace can be shipped to you, or picked up at the studio at your convenience.  You can even choose to add diamonds for just a small additional cost.

All this, plus 15% off anything in the showroom, champagne cocktails & freshly baked treats!

The workshop will be held Sunday June 22nd at 215 Caledonia Street in Sausalito, CA.

Take the ferry over from SF, we're just a 10 minute walk!

Showroom Opening Party

It's finally here!  It has been a crazy few months trying to balance filling my jewelry orders and opening the showroom.  What I thought would take me a month quickly morphed into a much bigger project than I had anticipated, but so life goes.  I'm very excited to put the finishing touches on the space and open the doors.  If you're in the Bay Area, please join us Saturday the 26th for the big reveal!

new home for SSJ

There have been countless life changes occurring lately in my world.  The one I'm most excited to share involves a personal & professional change of location.   I found myself longing to connect with nature again -- the very thing that inspires my work.   While I love Oakland from the bottom of my heart, I've learned that I truly am a wanderer and I thrive on change.  So here we are, after much radio silence, announcing that Sarah Swell jewelry will be opening a studio/showroom in Sausalito, CA!

I won't be announcing our opening day just yet as we furiously work to not only fill all of our jewelry orders, but also create a new space that you'll want to visit and never want to leave.

I have some images of our progress to share & cannot wait to share more!

The year in jewelry

While catching up on year end accounting, I got just a little bit distracted and ended up sifting through images from 2013.  I thought I'd share my year in jewelry moments with you.  Here's to new adventures to come!

I celebrated one year of marriage and 10 years of togetherness with my love sweet love (yes, I had terrible jeweler nails on my wedding day-oops!)

Visiting China & Sri Lanka on a whirlwind 3 week trip.  One of my favorite moments was visiting this jewelry studio in the town of Galle, Sri Lanka.  Note the foot bellow for the air fed torch!

Leaving my Light-filled Oakland studio space (sob!)  More on that later.
