Biography

At Dirigible Designs, we fabricate sterling silver jewelry that uses hand-cut, fortunately found, and wisely collected stones and materials. Our work explores the tension between asymmetry and balance, the use of traditional versus non-traditional materials, and the collaboration of design and ideas between partners. We infuse sustainability in our designs by including recycled materials and bypassing the refinery process by sand casting our silver scraps in-house. Due to the nature of our materials, all our jewelry is one-of-a-kind. Each piece, elaborate or simple, is crafted by us, for you.

Dirigible Designs is Blake Smith and Melanie Schlossberg; each began metalworking as teenagers.  Melanie studied metalsmithing at Syracuse University in upstate New York and Blake made custom jewelry while running a bronze foundry business in the Texas hill country. They have been crafting Dirigible Designs together since 2015.
