How the Gear Became Gold

The craziest gift I ever received was a casting centrifuge and all the tools, books, and supplies that I needed to start my jewelry business.

I answered an ad on freecycle a couple months after i'd been laid off. She just kept bringing out the boxes of her mothers jewelry making things. I have never felt so blessed.

This womans gift has changed everything about my life and how I plan to live it. Since that day, I've been happier and more positive than I've been in my whole life. A total stranger gave me back my creative mojo and the tools to start my new life!

This is how my little store opened. I'm still mostly only casting the original screw earrings that I first made when I got my mojo back but i've since added lots of other neat things that I make.

Thanks Gail!

  • Ilana Murray

    Owner, Designer, Maker, Curator

    Ilana is a Silicon Valley native and life-long artist with a love for creative materials use. As a long time costumer, steampunk, and prop builder, she has worked with many materials and techniques that round out an eclectic array of creations.

  • Dennis

    Designer, Assistant, Creator

  • Stan Lee

    Supervisor

    Stan Lee supervises our every move. You may find his seal of approval stuck to your package as he inspects every item that leaves the shop. We rescued Stan Lee (shelter named Stanley - but he has a little white cameo around his neck!) in late 2015.

  • Pudge

    Supervisor

    Pudge is our secondary supervisor. Mostly he looks disapprovingly at us while we work when it interferes with his daily viewing of the bird feeder. Pudge is a British Shorthair that we rescued in late 2015. He is 2 years old.

  • Banjo Bam Bam LoPan Wiggly Noodle

    Shredder

    Banjo's primary role is to devour all boxes that come into the shop. You will know him by the stripey hairs stuck in random places on every order. We rescued this little Bengal in 2020. Heaven help us.

We have both been designers and makers in our personal and professional lives and, after getting laid off from our high-tech jobs, decided it was time to go full time with our dreams and make cool things for a living
