We recently held our second Jewellers’ Salon, and the lovely Gillian Deery joined us to discuss her Paper-Plastic-Metal-Stone exhibition at Brooklyn Metal Works in New York.

Run by metalsmiths Brian Weissman and Erin Daily, Brooklyn Metal Works is an art studio that offers workspaces for jewellers and metalsmiths to rent, as well as a wide range of classes and workshops taught by professional artists. Their gallery space regularly showcases the work of local and international artists, designers and makers. Through their shared studio space, Brian and Erin aim to encourage exploration and experimentation, and strengthen the knowledge base in the field of metalsmithing of all involved at Brooklyn Metal Works.
