Hey friends, c’mon!

FullSizeRender-1Trying a new fun thing with friends is such a joy!  Leaving with a memory + an awesome piece of handmade jewelry is even better!  At Meltdown Studio, we’re all about making metalsmithing accessible for all those who are interested in trying it.  We love nothing more than making jewelry dreams come true!  If you fall in love ((like we have, with this alluring artform)) maybe we’ll see you again for some more fun times!  And if not, we enjoyed getting to know you and helping you accomplish your goals.  Check out our private and semi-private classes, they’re tailored specifically for YOU!

ABQ the Magazine: Best of…

thumb_IOOZ3018_1024What a HUGE honor to have been selected in not one, but TWO categories for Albuquerque the Magazine’s 2016 “Best Of” issue.  Overall winner for Best Local Secret, and top five for Best Casual Jewelry.  Thank you ABQ the mag!!  We sure do appreciate all that you do, and we hope our best kept secret isn’t such a secret anymore!  😉

Tree of Life – Wire Twisting Class

We started off 2017 with another great class with guest instructor, Bevin Moon of Desert Moon Designs.  Bevin instructed our students on how to create their very own wire twisted Tree of Life Pendants, incorporating large cabochons.  As it turns out, this technique is FUN!!  We had a blast, and everyone went home with a completed pendant.  Bevin will be returning to Meltdown Studio soon with more great techniques, and she’s excited to share them with you!  Read more about this class here!
