What is Dirigible Designs?
Handcrafted sterling silver jewelry that uses hand cut, fortunately found, or wisely collected stones and materials. We drill beach pebbles at our Houston studio, and shape stone slabs at our Austin studio. Due to the nature of our materials, all of our jewelry is one-of-a-kind. Each piece, elaborate or simple, is crafted by us, for you.
Who is Dirigible Designs?
Blake Smith and Melanie Schlossberg each began metalworking as teenagers. Melanie went on to study metalsmithing at Syracuse University in upstate New York. Blake continued to make custom jewelry while running his bronze foundry business in the Texas hill country, casting life sized sculptures for artists and local entities. They have been crafting Dirigible Designs together since 2015. It is a love story - made of metal and rock.
It's the best word ever.
