Vendor Spotlight! Forge & Finish!
Three jewelry designers. Three artistic visions. Forge & Finish represents a union kindled by the promise of producing handcrafted, skillfully-made pieces for people who seek and covet accessories made by designers with a sharp eye for detail. Marrying traditional metal smithing techniques with mold-making and slab-forming is the core of Forge & Finish Studio. The Philadelphia, Pennsylvania based studio is home to Bombita Designs, Demure de Rigueur, and Lace Army. These three companies together form a basis for where you can buy jewelry from collections that are easily mix-and-matched providing endless options and fresh looks. Their online shop is the perfect place for individuals to accessorize a versatile wardrobe, or for procuring one-of-a-kind gifts. At Forge & Finish you will find that some jewelry begins as metal sheet, rod, wire and tubing. Others are molded and formed from clay or concrete. Whichever medium at hand, the women behind Forge & Finish have developed a special exercise to spawn cohesive collections whilst harnessing their innate artistic impulses. The process starts with a part crafted by one designer, which then gets passed through the hands and added onto by the other designers. The result is a collaborative piece mounted amidst the work space and looked upon to inspire the next collection. This process is important to gathering the minds in a flux, ambitious state, and serves to strengthen the bond between the women of Forge & Finish.
