Cloisonné Watches

Nov 7, 2023 marked the end of another successful Make-Your-Own-Cloisonné-Watch-Dial class in Watsonville, CA with enamel artist Merry-Lee Rae, dial artist Rebecca Montgomery, and myself. Students came from as far as France and also from all over the United States. The learning curve was steep but we all came away better from the experience.

Here in Oregon, we are in the land of the industrious and hard-working beaver. It’s Oregon’s state animal and they are everywhere. Including now, on the wrist of an Oregon State University Alumnus and sports fan.

Celeste, now available at Ben Bridge Jewelers

Several years ago, a good friend gave me a copy of Timeless Magazine by Ben Bridge Jeweler. It was their watch edition and when I read the introductory letter by Lisa Bridge, President and CEO, it brought tears to my eyes because it was the first time I’d ever read of a company that wanted their watches to be a part of how we look and feel each day.

As we begin our 6th year on Main Street

As we begin our 6th year on Main Street (six is lucky, right?), we are fortunate to have released our first magazine, made incredible partnerships, received the  trademark for "Celeste" on all jewelry in the US, and made it through Covid-19. We've developed new systems for watchmaking, invented our own custom tools to make us more efficient, and learned to work together as a team even better than before.

The End of an Era

The End of an Era

It's with regret that we are discontinuing our Radiance and Sweetheart/Love watches. We had a good run but it's time to learn new processes and discover additional ways to create dials.
