Tess Doran and Dave Jones rented the space behind the studio for several years, creating high end pieces of jewelry for galleries in Colorado, North Carolina & for exclusive art and craft shows. They moved to Ireland, Tess’ home country after the birth of their first child. They then returned to Kutztown, Pennsylvania to open a gallery called ‘Made’.
From their website: ‘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.’
