I often joke that DPJ Studios is housed in my backyard she-shed. We really do work out behind my home in a beautifully finished studio space. It is likely that we will eventually outgrow the space but I am content to stay as long as possible in here. It really is amazing what can be done within a very small footprint. Especially when it comes to jewelry making. I am reminded that I began working out of a closet at the start of what became this business.
Most gemstones and raw materials are either made in the U.S. or purchased from U.S.-based suppliers whenever possible.
