Artisan Jewelry Handcrafted in Vermont 

A Good Days Work.

Posted on May 25, 2016 by Brianne Taylor

After many hours spent in the studio building and crafting fly fishing rods, Matthew was finally able to get out and put them to work this week.  We are so lucky to live in such a great state with amazing fishing spots just around the corner.  So with the weather finally turning, he set out to give his latest rod a test drive.  No fish came home with him, but he had a great time trying!

Matthew has been working in a new medium...Cherry Wood

Posted on April 18, 2016 by Brianne Taylor

With the growing interest and passion behind Matthew's fishing rod and damascus steel knives we needed to find a new home for them in the shop.  Going out and purchasing a case would just be too simple and predictable, so in traditional Matthew style he decided he would design and build a case for them to be displayed in.  


With a custom carved fish including an inlay eye made of bone, no detail was left behind.  

Now is the fun part of filling the case with custom and handmade fishing rods, knives and all the other toys Matthew enjoys creating when he isn't designing and making jewelry.  Stop by and see what he has made, it might just be the gift you are looking for the Man in your life.


See you at the studio!

A Favorite...

Posted on September 17, 2014 by Brianne Taylor

This piece is a personal favorite of mine… it doesn't have a large shiny diamond or fancy colored gemstones, but more importantly it has a lot of sentimental meaning.



As you can see from the photo, this is a custom belt buckle made with a pair of eyeglasses.  This customer's husband, Roberto is an eye doctor and he would include a

How to clean your Jewelry - Part II

Posted on September 10, 2014 by Brianne Taylor


For those who found last week's blog post helpful about how to clean your jewelry at home, we have a couple more tips for you!


Cleaning Diamonds:

Soak for 20 minutes in a solution of one cup warm water and 1/4 cup ammonia. Then gently scrub with a soft-bristle toothbrush, getting into the small areas between the diamond and the setting. Rinse with warm water, and lay on a tissue to dry. This method works great for diamonds set in Platinum and Gold,  if you have a diamond set in silver you do not want to use ammonia.


Cleaning Pearls:

Rub each pearl individually with a soft, clean cotton cloth dampened with a solution of two cups warm water and a few drops of a mild dishwashing liquid.  Do not soak strands of pearls as this can cause them to stretch. Let air-dry overnight.


As always we welcome you to visit the shop for a free cleaning!
