Emmy Bean Jewelry

Emmy Bean Jewelry Upper Bucks county award-winning jewelry artist, metalsmith, and jewelry teacher. I was first introduced to fine metals when attending Kutztown University as an Art Education major.

It was love the first time I picked up a torch. Ever since, designing and making jewelry has been a big part of my life... my work is often referred to as"whimsical, youthful, and organic in feel. I use recycled metals and source fantastic gemstones from all over the world to use in my unique pieces. I'm also currently a jewelry instructor at The Banana Factory in Bethlehem, PA.

11/14/2021

I got the phone call everyone dreads: "You have breast cancer." My very first mammogram at age 41 led to a diagnostic mammogram, a biopsy, then diagnosis. High-grade Stage 1 and Stage 0, ER–/PR–/Her2+. I had zero symptoms, zero family history. There's days I forget about it, and other days I can't stop thinking about it; I made this ring as a way to cope. After many, many weeks since that phone call I am finally having my surgeries on November 19th with #PhillysBestBreastSurgeon @drmoniquegary This means taking a break from my work at the busiest time of the year... then doing something called "taking it easy" for a few weeks, which is a foreign concept for me. When you're self-employed and have no employees, your job isn't a "9 to 5," it's a "when I open my eyes till when I close my eyes," type of gig, every. damn. day. My turnaround times for pieces will be increased, but I'm working on making plenty of ready-to-ship items for gift giving.

P.S. Get your damn mammogram. Early detection is important; if you aren't yet 40 but are worried you may have symptoms, or have family history, talk to your doctor. Don't have insurance? Contact #PlannedParenthood, they can help you receive a low or no-cost mammogram. Also, breast cancer isn't just a woman's disease, anyone can get it... so, for everyone out there, if you have questions, or have symptoms, please talk to your doctor... the conversation is confidential and stigma-free.

One thing checked off my to-do list, only a million things left... Finished these rose cut tourmaline rings this afternoon, a rainbow of colors and lots of sparkle, range from size 5 to 8.

08/06/2021

One of the pieces I've just listed... pipe crystal boulder opal ring, size 7. The opal was a little tricky to cut and polish, but so rewarding when I found all that color!

"I made it myself!" Whether it's food, clothing, or art, when we make it ourselves, the meaning is deeper, the bond is stronger, it has been elevated due to a personal connection.

Jacob contacted me way back in 2019, I taught him how to make the beautiful salt-and-pepper rosecut diamond ring he proposed with. Yesterday, they traveled to the LV from NYC, and I taught Jacob and Elly how to make each others wedding rings. ❤ Not just wedding rings, but a story, a memory they forged together. Congrats to you two!

Lately I've been slacking in the studio, just making orders and that's it... I've been lacking inspiration and focus. 😖 I have new pieces to list, they've been waiting for the past month (thanks, depression!) but, here's one of them... watermelon tourmaline slice earrings... now I'll be accountable for editing photos. 😉

Volume up to hear those cicadas screaming! 😁 Stunner of a boulder opal ring, needed video to show allllllll that flash. ⚡🌈⚡ {reserved}

Second of six listed! Boulder opal flashing red, gold, green, blue, and violet, in a 14k bezel and silver ring. 💖 Swirly, twirly patterning, with waves of color. 🌈

06/06/2021

🌟SOLD🌟 Listed, both on my website and Etsy shop! 18k bezel around black opal, and a super comfy silver ring band. 🥰

06/06/2021

🌟SOLD🌟 Photos of the new rings were taken today, still working on selecting the best ones, cropping, etc. An unexpected shopping trip to find summer clothes for my daughter (who won't stop growing!) took a good part of the day. But, would you look at the flash in this one?! Planning on listing them tomorrow on my website and my Etsy shop.

Six ready-to- ship rings finished! It was a challenge today, had lots of stuff to accomplish both in and out of the studio. Looks like weather will allow for sunshine photos on Saturday. 🥰 Which is your favorite?

I recently made a 14k and sterling pendant for a small pipe crystal opal (9 x 5mm) and couldn't have done it without Jett Sett. A great tool for the studio, for setting stones, engraving, and more! It's a thermoplastic that softens in hot water, you then embed what you're working on, and once the Jett Sett cools and hardens, your piece is firmly in place and you have both hands to work. {P.S. this post is not sponsored, I just really like it and highly recommend it!}

Great news, all! I stayed up really late and was able to score an appointment for my first COVID vaccine!!! 🥰 After my family and I are fully vaccinated—and regulations allow—I'll be able to teach jewelry classes again. Who else is excited?!? Being high risk has been scary, but I'm glad there's hope on the horizon.
