Ada and her family are immigrants from Communist Poland. Among the things she brought with her are the value of hard work, the courage to dream big, and the belief that anything is possible.
Ada’s love for metalsmithing came unexpectedly, but it all worked out for the best. She found the passion that inspired her to be her most creative self.
Tell us about your jewelry business. How did it start?
“I started my jewelry business soon after I graduated from the University of Washington. I took a metalsmithing class during thewinter quarter of what was supposed to be my last year at the University. I loved it so much (thanks to Professor Mary Hu) that I dropped both of my other majors and got a BFA degree in Metals.”
Why types of jewelry do you make?
“I have a production line of jewelry that I sell. It’smade up of ready to mail items,custom work, and personalized pieces.
Ada shares how much she enjoys thecreative process that goes into every piece. But if she hasto choose between ready-made and custom…
“I truly love making custom jewelrybecauseit gives me the chance to create wearable pieces of artwork that tell the story of the wearer.Ienjoy the entire process from designing with the client to creating unique heirloom-quality pieces of jewelry and accessories.”
Walk us through your creative process. How does each piece come to life?
“Each piece starts out as an idea. I begin witha quick sketchand then createmock-ups on the computer. Everything I make starts out as raw sterling silver material in a silver sheet. Each item is lovingly cut out with a jeweler’s saw, soldered with my studio torch, andleanedwith my flex shaft. Some pieces are also given a patina bath to create a vintage feel. All the pieces I make are donein-house.”
What is your favorite piece so far and what is the story behind it?
“I haven’t had a chance to share it online yet, but I recently completed a uniquecustom order. I made a 25th-anniversary wedding ring out of a woman’s wedding ring. The whole process was a wonderful experience. I met the client in personanddiscussed elements she admired. We also incorporated lots of sentimental details into the new ring. There were heart elements, which originally had been hand-drawn by her two children, pierced out from sheets of metal to have a sweet little reminder of them. When I finished, I was sothankful and thrilled that she picked me to create such aunique and truly special ring for her.”
Besides jewelry, Ada also makes key chains, bookmarks, and home décorincludingpicture frames.
What challenges do you face as an artist and business owner?
“Being able to separate work from family time and raising a child.”
What business or personal milestone has inspired you to keep on creating?
“Having the opportunity to speak at the Tacoma Art Museum about my work as well as my business. It was such a special experience and privilege to be included in an amazing line-up of artists that I admired.”
Thank you for trusting us to print your business cards. How was your experience?
Ada hopes for a promising future—not just for her—but for other local artisans as well. She looks forward to having a space where artists and makers like herself can showcase their work and hold workshops for the public.
For now, Ada is happy doing what she loves and promotes her handmade jewelry on her Facebook and Instagram pages. Despite the convenience, she still prefers to do it the old-fashioned way.
“Local events are a great way to meet people, and personally see how people interact with my pieces.”
And they’re a great place to hand out business cards, too!
