While exploring Phoenix and the surrounding areas this winter, I visited Moonage in Tempe, a shop offering the work of local artists. While there, I met silversmith Jenny Vaughn and brought home a beautiful silver and onyx ring made by her. Interested in the process of how Jenny makes her jewelry, I photographed a workshop given by her and Tyler and Kelli, the owners of Moonage. The participants were all beginners and each left that evening with a silver ring they had designed and made themselves. Below are a few of my images from that workshop. I've sinced signed up for a workshop later this month to make my own ring. Can you blame me? Who wouldn't want to use a blow torch, cut and stamp some metal, and make something pretty?
