BLUEFINNSTUDIO copper jewelry making studio work


BASKETOFBLUE.COM is the shop and blog of Blue Finn Studio jewelry design studio located in the Philadelphia area. Everything is made by hand using simple tools and pure source materials. I use various metals – copper, brass, bronze, silver to create pieces. Many methods are used including natural patina, electroforming, soldering, fusing and flame painting. Some pieces use set gemstones or semi precious stones. Patina is created using an all natural method exposing copper to fumes of ammonia and salt or vinegar and salt, enameled copper is created with the torch firing method individually one piece at a time. Flame painting is a way to create color changes in copper with flame only, it is a fascinating method, you can read more in my blog post How to Flame Paint Copper.

The inspiration for the jewelry comes from nature, ocean, rustic beaches, plant life, architecture and other design mediums. Some of my designs are influenced by modernist, mid-century modern and Nordic design. I grew up in Finland and am a big fan of Saarinen, Aalto and other masters. Copper is a fabulous material that is very versatile. Copper can be hammered, torched, enameled, flame painted, patinated, electroformed, the list goes on. The creative base station is a home studio, all the handmade jewelry is created with love and care.  

Please feel free to email me if you would like more details on items in the shop. Sometimes I can also make customized pieces, mostly based on a an already existing design. Please contact for details and what you are looking for. Periodically I incorporate other carefully selected products from other artists, items that have that something special. Every handmade item is made proudly in the USA.

I believe in handmade and the careful process that goes into creating each piece. With a handmade item you also get the history and energy that went into creating that particular piece. It was not stamped with a machine and processed with chemicals in a cold factory, but made by a human with care.  I will take any item back if you find it doesn’t please you!  I make, package and ship each piece specifically for you!
