We offer the highest quality hand-crafted metalwork, as well as a personal family touch to all our creations.
If you are looking for one-of-a-kind, beautiful, modernist design-inspired metalwork, look no further. We are the oldest continuous design house production studio and gallery for modernist metal arts in the United States.
We use recycled or responsibly sourced metals, non-conflict diamonds, recycled hardwoods, and 19th century ivory for inlay works of art. We do not use modern ivory derived from any wild animals in any of our work.
For customers who can come into the brick-and-mortar store in San Francisco, we offer a one-of-a-kind experience and a chance to meet your artist and view your custom-designed pieces being cast before your eyes.
You can also order our work online from our store.
Getting started involves picking stones, metal, and sizing. The couple then moves to the designing phase and decides whether to cast or fabricate their rings. The decision is largely based upon the design of the ring that is desired.
Fabrication can be faster and may involve rolling, filing, soldering, and polishing, all of which can be done in the initial 4-hour session. If the couple decides to cast their rings, they will begin to carve their own hand-crafted wax bands. On the next working day, the couple will cast the rings into metal and polish them until they shine!
In addition to custom jewelry, we offer jewelry classes through our Metalworks Jewelry School, including a trendy couple’s wedding ring workshop. Visit Metalworks for more information!
