Studio Luna Verde: Colorado Springs, CO
Ace, of Studio Luna Verde, wandered (and settled) in Colorado several years ago, after exploring and hiking and driving all over the Western United States. During her travels, Ace has worn many different hats but metalsmithing is the thing that really connected with her. Her passion and creativity come through in her somewhat wild and raw designs.
Adriane Panciera: Paonia, CO
Adriane Panciera's formal training began at the University of the Arts and later came through several years of apprenticeships, with fine, commercial, and art jewelers across the U.S. All her pieces are contemporary and easy to wear, as she aims to create designs that are future heirlooms, with a knowing nod to the past in technique and style.
