We’re still buzzing from our last crew of makers <3
This February & March we invite you to our happy place.
We know the winter can be a drag, but inching up to a challenge is a sure fire way to stir up some heat. We’ll provide the tools, materials, and guidance to make makers out of you. Yes-YOU! These pics don’t lie.
Trust the process, and go home after each class with new skills and eventually a finished project that you can be proud to say you built with your own two hands.
What’s on the roster: Three opportunities for 4-week long workshops. February & March Introduction to Jewelry in Metals on Saturdays. March Intermediate Jewelry on Sundays.
Where we meet: our Philadelphia studio in the Viking Mills building in East Kensington.
Why you want to be there:
•You appreciate and support the handmade culture.
•You always wondered what goes on behind the scenes of a jewelry studio. Maybe you have managed to make simple pieces on your own, and you’re ready to take your ideas to the next level.
•You have an affinity toward creative projects in your spare time and crave a new outlet.

Forge + Finish and Happy Land Handmade collaborated in creating a small batch of earrings combining sterling silver and porcelain.
Juntos means together. While we are beautifully individual, a higher plane was achieved by acting with juntos in mind. For this collection, the joining of contrasting elements and our creative minds represents the value in forming bridges with our ideas.
The Juntos Collection was manifested with a desire to shine light on the current state of our nation. With so much division and strife concerning the Dreamers and immigrant status of numerous detained peoples, we were inspired to demonstrate solidarity through our work. We remember with honor that Americans originated as immigrants from all over the world, which is what fortified the culturally boundless and progressive country we are today. With this series we celebrate beauty created from diversity.
All earrings in this collection are one of a kind works designed to provide a fashion statement of hope, while subtly broadcasting the spirit of JUNTOS.
