The Process

Studio Shot

Union Studio pieces are designed and built by master metalsmith Michelle Keller and her team of highly educated metalsmiths, all of which hold bachelor degrees in Metal Arts. Therefore the construction knowledge is above the bar, as each piece is 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!
