Lisa York's Profile

About

Lisa York, of Fugudesigns, works out of a Ravenswood (Chicago) studio. Ok... so some people call that part of their apartment the "kitchen". Tomato tomahto.

I suffer from a bad case of Jeweler's A.D.D., hence the totally scattered listings. I started studying metalsmithing a few years ago and love working with darned near everything - xrays, raw diamonds, horsehair, teeth, taxidermy eyeballs..... well, you get the idea.

I started lapidary classes earlier this year and totally fell in love with the process of cutting my own stones. Taking a rough chunk of junk and working it to see what little bit-o-beauty lies within is endlessly fascinating! All the new work is hand cut (by me!).
