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.

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. πŸ’– Swirly, twirly patterning, with waves of color. 🌈

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

🌟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. πŸ₯° 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!}

On the bench today: setting opals, turquoise, and diamonds (not pictured) in fine silver, 14k, and 18k. Opals in gold bezels on silver rings are my favorite thing right now. πŸ₯°

Great news, all! I stayed up really late and was able to score an appointment for my first COVID vaccine!!! πŸ₯° After my family and I are fully vaccinatedβ€”and regulations allowβ€”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.

Ready-to-ship items still available after today, but the last day for absolutely-guaranteed-by-Christmas delivery is December 18th, USPS Priority and USPS Priority Express must be used.

If you're local, and you're willing to meet me in Quakertown for pick-up vs. shipping, let me know. πŸ™‚

Good things are worth the wait... I have a TON of new opals arriving Wednesday and Thursday. Crystal opals, black opals, pipe crystal boulder opals, boulder opals... and still waiting for more to arrive. More = big boulder opals for necklaces and rings. 😍

A lot of these will be listed for custom pieces, mainly rings or pendants. They are fabulous! Do you have a favorite piece? πŸ₯°

To keep people safe and adhering to social distancing measures, all of my jewelry classes through May have been canceled, and all of my art shows through June 20th have been canceled by the organizers. πŸ˜” No word yet on shows later in the summer, fall, or winter. I'm hoping for the best, but preparing for the worst. 🀞🀞🀞

What does this mean? I'll be continuing to make new work and list it on my site, and I'm looking into how to hold virtual craft shows in collaboration with other artists and fine crafters. πŸŽ¨πŸ–ΌπŸ§ΆπŸ’πŸ“·

I revisited a technique from years ago, combining gold and silver. Made these yesterday after breaking through a couple of rough days... quite literally finding light among the darkness, and letting it shine.

24k and 14k on fine and sterling silver; sterling has been oxidized to let the gold shine.

I'll be back in my home studio on Monday, but today I'm working on N95-style masks for family and neighbors. Used mine today at the grocery store, and it was super comfortable!

I was shocked to see most people weren't wearing masks or gloves, weren't respecting a six-foot minimum distance, and saw a lot of entire families shopping together (with infants!). It's officially been recommended in PA (and other states) to wear a mask in public to help #stopthespread and only one person per family per store at a time to limit potential exposure #onepersononecart

Stay safe, all. And, when you don't *have* to get groceries, gas, or prescriptions: #stayhome πŸ’–

It's a scary time, all. But, since I'm self-employed I'm still working, still creating, still selling online... No word yet on my planned art shows postponing or cancelling, but will update as soon as I know anything (my first show is scheduled for May).

As always, please try to support small businesses, especially in times like this. For self-employed artists and craftspeople, there's no safety net, no unemployment benefits. We don't just live paycheck-to-paycheck... we live from sale to sale, waiting for that next sale so we can buy groceries, put gas in the car, buy clothes and shoes for kids that just hit yet another growth spurt, or pick up prescriptions. πŸ’–

Opal mountain, 24k keum boo sun

I've had this opal for a while now, was stumped how to use it best. After watching some Bob Ross episodes, to me it looked like a mountain, part in sun and part in shade. So, I made a 24k gold keum boo sun to shine onto the bright section of the opal.
