Hey y’all, lets celebrate before the holidays make life too hectic. Stop by the studio Friday or Saturday (11/16 & 11/17) and party. There will be jewelry demos (literally any question you have about a tool, my process, fire, materials, just ask and I will show you how I make stuff). There will be bling (maybe start some holiday shopping early…). There will also be some eats and drinks and puppy kisses. Can’t wait to see you!

There is a brewery on site and a food truck outside. Come see what Western Ave is all about!
