ART TO LIVE WITH AND ENJOY...IN STERLING SILVER

Hi again,

Today I’m going to focus on life after school…..and advertising!  I went to work for renowned jeweler Robert Lee Morris, working in his studio in Soho, NYC making his beautiful designs.  I then decided to go out on my own and the first thing I did was make a Sterling Silver AIDS ribbon benefitting the American Foundation for AIDS Research.  It was featured in many boutiques and in all Kenneth Cole stores nationwide.  That led to other charities asking me to design for them, including Hair Cares Foundation, The Arthur Ashe Foundation and Childrens’ Friends for Lifeimage

………It was very rewarding to be doing something good for others.  I still have that as a major part of my work which I will explain when next we see each other!

Hi, everyone.

The second installment of my blog will be published later today.

In the meantime, I just wanted to let you know that in addition to my regular website, I began today another little shop where I will be featuring new designs as I create them as well as some of my favorites, at up to 60% off my retail prices.  That will be updated weekly as well, so keep checking back for that perfect piece that has your name on it!

The new store is at    stephenprescott.bigcartel.com

STEPHEN PRESCOTT

Hello Everyone.  My name is Stephen Prescott.  I am a jewelry designer and silversmith living in New York.  I’ve never written a blog before, but think it is about time!  I’ve discovered that the more people know about me and the work that I do, the more they would like to own a piece of it.  So here goes…..

After college, I became a “Mad Man” working in the advertising industry for about ten years on so many well known products where I got a firm grasp for presentation of products and what people want.  In order to express more of my creative side, I started taking jewelry classes at the School of Visual Arts and Parsons School of Design, both in New York.  It was a really exciting time for me and I fell in love with making jewelry.  It was so cool to come up with an idea and then to create it!  The funny thing is that I can’t really draw, but give me a hunk of wax, and I can carve away what doesn’t belong!!  I create my pieces casting individual links, etc… using the “lost wax” process, but more on that later.

What I am going to try to do over the next several weeks, is take you through the jewelry making process from concept to finished jewel, so you can have a better understanding of how much is involved in making a piece to be enjoyed for years to come.  My philosophy about designing is not to create a piece that is “in the moment” but for “every moment”.  I don’t fabricate trendy designs that will be HOT for this season, never to be seen again.  I create unique pieces that I hope people will cherish.  Hopefully when you see what is involved, you will understand how much I strive to bring you excellent value and you’ll enjoy wearing the piece as much as I enjoyed making it.

More on my background and inspiration later.  See you back here soon..
