Jim Lawson was at Rio Grande last week to teach a photography class during our Summer Workshop Series. He sat down with us to talk about the difficulties of photographing jewelry and to share 10 easy tips from his class to help novice photographers start taking beautiful shots of their work.

Rio Grande Winter Workshop 2014 is underway and we are having so much fun with our guests from around the globe! Today Amy chatted with participant Dana Schneider, a jewelry designer whose name is on the minds of every costume designer in the L.A. film scene. Dana’s creations can be seen in multiple films, on television, and are worn by some of the most famous performers in Hollywood and beyond. Take a look and be inspired by Dana’s fun story, then come back all week as we bring you other highlights from Winter Workshop 2014!
Check out jeweler Melodie Owen’s recent interview on jewelspan.com, in which she talks about how much she’s learned in Rio Grande’s classes over the years. Melodie has become part of the Rio Grande family as she’s expanded her skills and knowledge, and we love following her work. Thanks Melodie!
