The ACFJ atelier is an extension of my life and of my jewelry. There is an area with benches, tools, machinery where all the work is done. There is also an office and lounge area where I like to receive my clients, put them at ease and discuss their ideas. I like to think about it as my home as I keep moving places, but the studio always stays the same, no matter its location.
The studio is located in Charlottesville and it is by appointment only because I like to take the time to meet my clients and discuss at length what their projects and vision are for the jewelry they want me to create. Even if we’re meeting virtually, by video call, I will be showing you gemstones and materials and giving you a glimpse of what the atelier looks like.
I love the color white because it gives me space to think and allows me to imagine color, so don't be surprised to find a white, clean and modern studio space. Everything is neutral so that we can play with colorful gemstones and bright jewelry.
I like to think that I'll make you feel right at home. We can discuss projects on the couch or we can pick gemstones on the meeting table. You can see the different stages of the jewelry creation process because this is where the jewelry is made. By hand, with purpose and with intention.
And even though the ACFJ is in the heart of Charlottesville, I work with clients all over the world. By email, phone, FaceTime or Skype, we make it happen. The only difference in treatment is that my 4-legged studio assistant won't be able to greet you.
