Classically trained in the European jewelry and watch making tradition, our studio’s master jeweler is Frenchman Jean whose passion for his craft is as palpable as his love for design partner and mirror-muse Leslie (an illustrated book author, graphic artist, and former French professeur).
Creators of fluidly styled art that's superbly crafted in sterling silver and gold, we specialize in fine jewelry and lockets that are made in our shop on historic Jewelers Row, just two blocks from the Liberty Bell. Visits by appointment are welcome!
Sharing our skills and experience since our studio's 1985 founding, we have been pro bono mentors to an international cast of aspiring jewelers, and have truly enjoyed learning from them too!
Our raison d'être: Things men have made with wakened hands, and put soft life into are awake through years with transferred touch, and go on glowing for long years.... D.H. Lawrence
