I had the honor of photographing talented artist Mike Rogers of Precious Metal Arts at his storefront/studio in downtown Boise. He has been designing and creating stunning, one-of-a-kind, custom jewelry for over 28 years. His studio is a reflection of him and I wanted to capture the essence of Mike in his studio, along with his charming dog, Townes (named after songwriter Townes Van Zandt) and some of Mike's beautifully custom designed rings.
I was fascinated as he took me through some of the steps of his artistic process: from sketching, creating a mold, and melting silver. Mike created a beautiful, custom floating diamond solitaire necklace for me, which I love! Thank you, Mike!
You can visit Mike (and Townes) at their studio Precious Metal Arts, 280 N. 8th St. in downtown Boise.
If you are an artist or small business owner, I would love to share your vision and story through my photography and design. Contact me and let's collaborate!
