Happy Friday! We've just added a collection of beautiful handmade jewelry by Portland artists Megan and Agnieszka of Matchbox Studios to our jewelry page!
A bit about Matchbox:
Matchbox Studio is the result of jubilant play in the studio, and delight in the processes of creativity and construction. Each piece is handmade in a lovely workshop in Portland, OR.
The current collection combines traditional metal smithing techniques with peyote stitch, a bead weaving technique found in historic Native American beadwork often used to decorate items used in peyote ceremonies. Each bead is meticulously added one by one to create a fabric that is then sewn to the piece.
Megan McKean and Agnieszka Zoltowski are the artists behind Matchbox Studio, two makers with their own individual style and techniques that they artfully blend together to create the work you find here. Their aim is to design and create jewelry with joy, attention, and playfulness.
