The Process

Union Studio pieces are designed and built by master metalsmiths Michelle Keller and Margarett Ritter. Each piece is built with a construction knowledge that is above the bar and hand built with wearability, comfort, and artistic style in mind. 

From start to finish your jewelry is well planned with you in mind. It all starts with either a drawing or experimentation with materials in the studio where designs are born. After the designing phase the new piece is constructed which involves cutting, sanding, filing, soldering, forming, stone setting, etc. Basically every piece of jewelry that leaves our shop has been lit on fire and beat up on the anvil until it becomes a wearable, unique piece of art!
