hi- We are jewelry designers & makers whose interest in design has inspired us to open our very own retail space. We showcase the work of our friends and the work of innovative designers and small manufacturing companies. Dave is also a metal sculpture and lighting designer. We think it is possible to make people see that in our everyday lives we can surround ourselves with beautifully made and designed objects that make for a richer life, from the cup you drink your morning coffee or tea to the piece of paper you write your shopping list on.

I can't tell you how cool this Flensted mobile is. It is bold in shape and color, reminiscent of the Bauhaus School created by Walter Gropius at Weimar in 1919. If good stuff like this interests you, we have it at the MADE shop! tess
Yesterday was the first day of spring and this made me think of Easter, and that made me think of all the birds that would be coming back to our yard, and that made me think of this pretty wood-fired pottery bird box by Bandana Pottery! tess.
Just found out from Shawn Ireland that his 80ft tall Tenmoku candlestick was just installed in Piazza del Campo Siena, Italy. This Large three legged horse by an American in Sienna's main Piazza in anticipation of July 2nds Palio di Siena has caused quite a stir among the locals.
Not to mention the logistics of wood firing a 80 ft ceramic horse thing!
We sell Shawn's work and in fact have the original"model" here at MADE shop.
seriously - The MADE shop has the new jewelry, where you can see this pendant of vintage plastic, tagua nut (palm nut), silver and steel which has been drilled, burned and riveted! Why shop anywhere else?
This will be a total surprise to all of you but for many many months we have been working on our most ambitious ad campaign ever - and truth be told it may be the best idea ever conceived. It would all have been impossible without the help of our team of ever loyal Sherpas and our sponsors - too numerous to mention here. Also lets not forget to thank NEPAL and its very understanding leaders that finally granted us permission to construct what you see before you. WE had to promise numerous handmade "gifts" to each and every government worker, and Sherpa involved and that may prove our only mistake!
What are these things?? They are felted candy-like neck pieces by Danielle Gori-Montanelli - the perfect accessory. The grey sweater I am wearing turned from boring to exciting when I added this splash of color. Available at MADE shop - only three left!
It is a rainy and blustery day outside the MADE shop. My mobile of wooden Flensted fish are very happy as they watch the sheets of water coming down while people chase their windswept hats and struggle with their inside out umbrellas! Seek refuge inside our lovely dry shop. Take something nice home!
Why? Because I get to turn this light on every night. A light with birds and leaves and flowers and Japanese paper and green copper and brown copper and dutch glass. Made by David Jones of MADE shop. Sweet day, and night dreams.
Pins like this one can only be found at the MADE shop. It comes from the creative hands of David Jones. This shield-like piece is a miniature sculpture of metals (copper, gold, silver) which have been folded, hammered, riveted and soldered. Looks like the best candy I've ever seen - yum!
It's time to start thinking about changing out that dull black or brown purse for this - The Earth Purse. This fab bag (with lots of other choices) is made from recycled clothing, upholstery fabrics and even shower curtains. They are stylish and practical - reversible even! And now you know where to get one, MADE shop.
unless it's to check out this cool bug table top sculpture! When David Jones found a danish chair with only three legs he didn't walk away thinking non-functional? No, he thought "perfectly great bug body! Seeing this great bug up close is a treat and an education - ingeniously thought out and executed - master of metal! Available at the MADE shop (there's only one!) tess
