A New Medium
After 30 years as a hairstylist and successful salon owner, Jeffrey Smith is directing his creativity towards a new medium — jewelry design. Smith’s first collection is bold and colorful, inspired by years of hairstyling, collaborating with other creative minds, and traveling. To create his unique pieces, Smith first learned the practical techniques of jewelry-making from local Pittsburgh artist Gerry Florida. From there, the designs came about quickly and beautifully. As a debut for the, collection Jeffrey Smith Studio will host a launch party on November 24.
