The recent BFA in Dance graduate from Ohio University advances her passion career through seeking further human connection and education in examining, performing, and choreographing dance. 

Dance training and performance offers a space to practice our ability to listen to each other, see each other, move with each other, consensually touch each other, and exist peacefully together, regardless of where we come from, what we look like, how we identify, and whom we love … Dance celebrates and relies on difference, and teaches the practice of non-judgement. To dance, to witness dance, to love oneself and to empathize with one another are political acts. Dance requires experiencing another body in relationship to one’s own. Dance is a form of political kindness.
— Lilianna Kane

Forge & Finish is proud to welcome and introduce the dancer & choreographer to Philadelphia. Along with dear pals, Fishtown's Riverwards Produce Market, who is set to host the 4th installment of Grocery Dance on Friday, September 7 from 12-3p.

We hear your inquiries about future workshops loud and clear and we appreciate the excitement. While our spring/summer schedule is filled with retail markets and traveling, we designate the fall/winter for teaching jewelry classes.

Mandorla Earring Workshop | October 13 | 1-4p |  Art Star Boutique     Mandorla::  the space where two circles overlap form its shape, which represents the interdependence of different beliefs or energies and the greater strength of the whole versus the sum of separate parts.

Mandorla:: the space where two circles overlap form its shape, which represents the interdependence of different beliefs or energies and the greater strength of the whole versus the sum of separate parts.

First up on the roster is a special earring workshop. The design (pictured above) packs an extra punch with its symbolic weight, by representing the interconnection of opposites circles in a permanent bond. Find us at Art Star Boutique this coming October.

To step into the Mandorla is to move beyond “either-or” thinking - even beyond ideas of common ground or compromise - and stand in the tension of opposites long enough for something new to emerge.

Ripple Collection Campaign

Forge & Finish

RPP.BROXY.EAR.jpg

All living beings require water to survive. There is no way around this fact. Plain and simple, we all need to make it our responsibility to remain active in protecting fresh water systems in order to ensure a healthy future. The Clean Water Action organization prioritizes this element, stays up-to-date and continues fighting our current administration's attempts to reverse water protection laws that provide safe water for our consumption.

FJORD.EAR_CLOSEUP.jpg

Forge & Finish is sharing the responsibility of protecting our nation's clean water laws by teaming up with the reputable organization Clean Water Action. Since 1972, they have made it their mission to educate and bring awareness to the public of what we can do as individuals to ensure clean water accessibility for generations to come. We admire the immense tenacity with which their team continues to build a clean water and clean energy future through outreach, organizing, advocacy and policy action at local, state and national levels. To show our gratitude, Forge & Finish presents a new jewelry line--the Ripple Collection--and pledges to donate 10% of its proceeds to the great people behind Clean Water Action. Its wavy, luminous texture designed to symbolize the movement of water combines metals and varies in shape and finishes. The collection serves as a daily reminder for its wearer of the effort put toward the continual education and preservation of our most precious life source. We encourage those who wear the Ripple Collection to share the powerful purpose carried within its beauty. For every bit of our history and future relies on a story told, so let this essential one echo far and wide and as often as you can. With this collection, Forge & Finish strives to live with a clean conscience by doing our part to help sustain our fresh water systems by promoting awareness and contribution through our brand. Thank you for helping us make clean water a priority!
