Process: One of a Kind Diamond Ring

Earlier this year I was honored to make yet another custom wedding band for a friend and fellow Austin business owner, Mariska Nicholson of Olive + M.  It is absolutely one of my FAVORITE rings to date and I thought I would share a bit about the process with you today....

Forma, Spring 2016

For Spring 2016 I focused on simple geometry and the interplay of shape, proportion, and negative space.  Forma is the result of a conversation between these ideas.  Our classic hammered texture adds interest and dimension, allowing these pieces to shine in their simplicity.  True to our core, each piece remains extremely lightweight, encouraging...

Mantle, Spring 2015

Once again, I am excited to share with you my new Spring 2015 collection, Mantle! Playing on the themes established in Fall 2014, Mantle is a bit bolder, brighter, and more substantial.  Maybe it was my new short platinum hairdo, but I felt inspired to break my mold a little...

Trace for Fall 2014

I am thrilled to unveil my fall 2014 collection, Trace!  For this collection, I wanted to play with texture, color, and light.  As a result of focusing on hammering, while eliminating semi-precious stones, I feel that this collection has returned to my roots as a metalsmith.  The layers of texture utilize light...

I am thrilled to announce the official launch of fail HOME!  I have been dreaming about a home collection for the past 2 years, and with the new studio setup, I was finally able to make this dream a reality. The collection is built upon organic hand-cut and hammered brass...

fail Spring 2014

I am please to present my spring 2014 collection, Pecos!  Born in West Texas, this collection takes its cues from the rugged landscape and soft dusty hues seen in the remote Texas desert.  I was once again inspired to use semi precious stones in unique ways, and I was also...

Designing a studio from the ground up!

It might be a little obvious that I have been pretty busy lately with the lack of posts coming your way.  I spent July finishing the studio and running around on the West Coast for 3 shows.  I basically took the one of the slower times of year and made...

Friday Finds

I wanted to start rounding up all of the inspirations and finds that I pinned, tweeted about, and lusted after over the previous week.  My goal is to have Forge serve as a little window into my process, inspirations, and thoughts and this is a way in without having to...

The Planning of a Studio, Part 1

Now that we are fully out of the store, its time to start building the studio!  Yes, ideally we would have already had the studio built, but we got a little delayed so there will be a transition period working out of my tiny office at the house.  As many...

Deco Collar Necklace {DIY}

I was challenged this week when trying to come up with a jewelry DIY as a guest post for the lovely Austin blog, If I Must Say So.  Instead of trying to find common yet interesting materials and incorporate them into a design that was worthy of being associated with...

The making of the S12 fail lookbook

Wow!  My first ever photoshoot is done and what a success!  With lots of clips, clamp lights, and a few tarps we were able to turn fail studios into a mini photography studio.  A big thanks to Suzanne for being our dress up doll, Heidi for inspired hair teasing {among...
