I was looking through my archives yesterday and I couldn’t believe that I’ve never published any of these pictures. I love them!

It’s my friend Lara Melchior‘s studio who’s one of the only jewelry makers I know who still does all of her work by hand.

Here you can see her setup and all the objects she surrounds herself with to get inspired. Yes, her bed is part of it – her studio is simply a space set aside in her room in her super awesome Parisian apartment.

She won’t always be able to do it all herself. People are asking for her stuff everywhere, so as it grows she’ll have to learn to delegate – which isn’t easy, believe me. The first time I got an assistant I had to do three sessions with my shrink just to stop myself from feeling so bad that I couldn’t do all the work myself! – and I encourage her to take that next step because I believe in her 2000% and I don’t want her to get bogged down in the daily tasks of building her own brand.

But I think it’s magical to think that each and every piece of jewelry comes directly from the hands of Lara, and is saturated with the peaceful light of her beautiful Parisian studio.
