So … we did it! We are in our new space and humming along! Voila some snaps :)
This was a big leap! A new town. New neighbors. Lots of work!
First and foremost, this is our new Baltimore studio - the new home of Linda Blackbourn Jewelry AND Workshop by LBJ, and we could not be happier. Designed to our specs in this perfect space - at this cool location - Meadow Mill, 3600 Clipper Mill RD., #124, Baltimore. We feel very lucky!
Right away our busy little LBJ studio was on the ground running, and we soaked up the space like a sponge. The showroom is perfect to display our collection, and our STONES, and more! AND ... we just love it!
(View Store Hours and details.)
But the big news ... we have designed and launched our Workshop Program. Linda has been working with another jewelry professional to design the first few workshops. Between the two of them is probably 40 years in the jewelry biz. (Neither of them feels the need to discuss this too much further, btw, lol.)
We've created workshops based on what we would want to wear - today. We are inviting you to join us in our creative space to work with what we would to create on trend pieces you will want to wear. Our next step is to make some samples and get the photos done and posted - watch here for another post soon with that AND instructor bios, etc.
