SAN RAFAEL, CALIFORNIA, August 10, 2023: Silverwork Studios introduces permanent jewelry, a customized chain bracelet, anklet or necklace that is actually welded on and meant to be worn all the time. 

Adding to the studio’s popular jewelry-making workshops, Silverwork Studios now offers permanent jewelry that is quickly and painlessly ‘sparked on’ with a special jeweler’s welding instrument.

The studio is now scheduling 30-minute appointments online to design your own permanent jewelry in sterling silver, gold filled and 14k gold chain. Bracelets start at $50, anklets at $65, and necklaces at $95.  

Silverwork Studios Co-Founder and CEO, Amy Fitzgerald, is excited to offer permanent jewelry, “We add the twist that only a workshop can: a unique bracelet, anklet or necklace that you can customize yourself in our design studio. The studio offers custom stamps, gemstones and charms to tailor-make something that fits perfectly and is uniquely yours. We’ll help you design a piece of permanent jewelry that you’ll love wearing every day.”

Co-Founder and Creative Director, Kelly Konis, explains the sentimental side of permanent jewelry, “Friends and family often get a matching set ‘sparked on’ together. It’s a fresh new way to express your love or mark a special moment in time. Permanent jewelry at Silverwork Studios is like a next level friendship bracelet that is symbolically meaningful, but now also stylish, durable, and uniquely yours.”

SAN RAFAEL, CALIFORNIA, October 26, 2022: Silverwork Studios, a make-your-own silver and gemstone jewelry workshop, is a startup that opens in Marin on October 26th. Located at Northgate Mall in San Rafael, the studio is a custom jewelry making space where anyone can make their own jewelry at a real studio in a directed workshop. The studio offers over 30 different kinds of beautiful gemstones that make fabulous rings, bracelets, pendants and earrings. The studio runs guided workshops Wednesday-Sunday and also offers gift cards that are perfect for the holidays.

Silverwork Studios is a partnership between Co-Founders, Amy Fitzgerald and Kelly Konis, both of Marin, who have been best friends since they met on the high school swim team in Amarillo, Texas. Amy and Kelly took a jewelry making workshop together for fun, and the friends were absolutely thrilled with the pieces they made. They were inspired to open a studio of their own, where they help complete beginners design their own jewelry with hands-on help in guided workshops.

 Kelly, the Creative Director, believes everybody can be creative and is focused on enabling a delightful experience for clients. “Making a piece of jewelry yourself might seem challenging at first. But in our guided workshops, we help our budding makers plan their design and craft a piece of jewelry that is uniquely theirs. The experience of making something beautiful with your own hands is exhilarating and lots of fun. Silverwork Studios is a place to let your creativity bloom, to make some smashing wearable art…and to have a good time!”

Amy, the CEO, has big dreams for Silverwork Studios, her brainchild. “We’re launching the studio in our own neighborhood where our close friends and neighbors can try their hand at making their own jewelry, just like Kelly and I did. We’re so excited to open our doors and offer this compelling workshop experience in Marin. We hope to be wildly successful, and our grand vision is to create a franchise of studios throughout California one day.”

The founders share a passion for art, and Kelly is the daughter of the late painter and instructor, Ben Konis. Dedicated to making art a part of life and supporting art in the community, Silverwork Studios showcases artists both young and old in the gallery-like setting and will donate 1% of profits to art programs for local school children. The studio will launch with an exhibit of extraordinary visual artworks focused on a mandala theme, featuring work from artist Romi Marks and students from Mary Silveira Elementary.
