What if you took the best traditions of handcraft–reverence for the made object, heartful engagement with material, and mastery of skill, and combined that with 3D printing and digital fabrication? What if artisanry is not lost to unthinking machinery? What if everything was beautiful, individual, and made to last?
May I present to you Steadcraft. New School. Old Fashioned. We create jewelry and accessories that are vintage-inspired, digitally-designed, and studio-crafted with integrity.
While I will continue to make one of a kind works under my own name, I am very pleased to announce that my designs will be available as low-production works under this new moniker. Our initial release will as rewards to backers of our Kickstarter campaign, which will begin soon after we introduce it all to the world at Maker Faire Bay Area, May 16 and 17, 2015.
After the Kickstarter is wrapped up, we will open our online shop, where you will be able to choose from a wide variety of earrings in bronze, copper, steel, and silver, as well as embroidered cuffs with locking clasps, cufflinks, belt buckles, brooches and more.
Your participation in this exclusive pre-order allows me not only the funds I need to take this to the next level, but invaluable insight into the jewelry that people love most, as well as the ability to gauge my costs when operating at a larger scale. As thanks for your support, I am offering all of this jewelry at 75% of my projected retail prices. You help me, I help you. I’m very grateful for the support I have received over two decades of doing this work, and I thank you all in advance for joining me as I make this next step forward.
I’ll be posting imagery of the work here in the coming weeks.
