Thurs. July 15 Webinar: Applying the Art of Kintsugi to Jewelry Design

Kintsugi is an age-old Japanese technique in which ceramic artists use lacquer mixed with powered gold to reattach shards of pottery. In this webinar, jewelry designer Christopher Taylor Timberlake, of Christopher Taylor Timberlake Fine Art Jewelry, describes how he adapted this technique for his own work and how he's using it to create stunning new jewelry designs that his customers love.

MJSA Webinars are free for Premier members, $15 for Associate members, and $50 per session for non-members.

Open for the second day of #eastaustinstudiotour !! I’ll be faceting these Montana sapphires, mostly for @failjewelry today! The first ring is a 1ct purple spinel pentagon, teal tourmaline rose gold meteorite ring. Last day if EAST fit me as I am going to a wedding next weekend and can’t be here.

"My interest in jewelry began as an obsessive fascination with the chemical formulas of gems and minerals and as a 13 year old I learned how to cut and carve those minerals by reading books and manuals. I majored in Geology and Theatre in college and worked as an apprentice and bench jeweler in multiple jewelry stores before earning my degree. After spending a few years working in jewelry stores and apprenticing under a master jeweler in Chicago, I went off on my own and began making my own work while also walking dogs to pay the rent. The custom jewelry and art festival sales allowed me to go full-time as an artist in 2010 and I opened my studio and showroom in Austin in 2014."⁠

Congratulations to Ben & Beth! I made their rings before the pandemic and then created these 8 pairs of Cufflinks for the ceremony held this past weekend. Ben brought me chunks of scrap marble as well as obsidian from some lava flows. The textures were so inspiring to design with! My faves are the hexagons whose design I based on Saturn’s hexagonal polar storm. All hand-fabricated sterling silver and custom stone cutting done by me. #rawcufflinks #menfashion #weddingcufflinks #rawobsidian

Happy October opals!! I hand-fabricated this lovely 14kt yellow gold white opal and lilac spinel ring with granulation in December 2019 for an old friend in Chicago to gift to his wife. It was the last piece I made before getting on the plane to visit family for the holidays. Always a sweet feeling, that. 😅 I cut the opal out of top grade Coober Pedy Australian opal rough from @christianos_opals

Congratulations to this pair of cool people! Second stone cut on my new @ultratec_facet machine and the most precise Montana sapphire I’ve ever cut.

This little guy turned 6 months old yesterday!! Swipe to see the Mother’s jewelry I made for his Mom @jennesarah . We had a great first visit with his paternal grandparents too!
Both boys born in January so Oliver, the eldest, represented by a red Montana almandine rose oval (mined by Sarah while she was pregnant with him) and Owen, by a Tanzanian purple pyrope marquise all set in 14kt white gold. The necklace is a pink pyrope rose-cut I cut and set in 18kt yellow gold. #atxmomstyle

Another teensy Montana sapphire ring! This time a lilac 3.3mm round with edge pattern Mokume in 18k yellow and 14k Palladium white gold with oxidized silver. Rough from @obsessedovergems this time.
(Same hand model as last time. Thanks @jennesarah !!)

I had such a blast creating this natural onyx white gold inlay ring for @landshiplife !!
It is way harder than you might imagine to find *natural* untreated onyx, which is by definition a banded neutral-toned agate. Most “onyx” you see in the world is either dyed or really a banded aragonite.

I made this 3 year anniversary pendant for @jennesarah using a quartz crystal geode I mined at the Sheffler Geode Mine in Alexandria, Missouri more than 20 years ago. It includes 3 heirloom diamonds from set into the prongs. I just love making meaningful jewelry with deep symbolism! Oh yeah, and “crystal” is the traditional 3 year anniversary gift. I bent that to my mineralogical will a bit. 😁

My Friday ode to March: some of my favorite #mokumegane aquamarine rings over the last 12 years. All stones cut in house. Accent stones of California blue jade and yellow sapphires. Some pieces designed in collaboration with the multitalented @rochelle__jl and @miracoquina
miss you both!!

I was honored to make this special custom meteorite and dinosaur bone ring using the client’s found dinosaur bone and ecstatic when he gifted me with all of these other pieces he dug near Big Bend in Texas!
He thinks it likely comes from a mosasaur based on where he discovered it.

Happy Pi Day!! I use the Pi symbol as part of my maker’s mark that goes on every piece I create. It is inspired by my initials CTT and my constant use of Pi in order to determine the precise length of metal to cut when creating rings. I want to thank Archimedes and Euler as well as mathematicians whose names I can’t remember but hopefully won’t be too upset that I didn’t mention them. ;)

Here are the results from that last vid I shared. Swipe to see the finished rings! 36 layer Mokume Gane, 14kt yellow gold, Palladium and 2kt red gold (shakudo).

Some semblance of normal has returned today. My thoughts are often on those who still do not have power and those who weathered the storm without shelter. Like many we were without power for nearly 3 days and still do not have running water but I am able to go to the studio for the first time in a week and try to get caught up. We’ve boiled enough snow and filtered it for drinking water for a day or so. Thinking of you Austin. Texas. and other parts of the country that have been hardest hit. #atx #texas🇨🇱
