We spend so many months drawing and developing each style, but you never get to feel that true excitement until the last stages when the metal is done and we begin to enamel and set the stones. The past few weeks have been one of those heady times in the New York studio, when so many beautiful designs were coming together all at once:

Ben was enameling the first prototype of the peacock that will sit on the corner of a rectangle 4″ x 6″ frame.

Kate was applying translucent olivine, teal, and topaz enamel on the majestic new 8″ x 10″ peacock frame.

Stella was hand-setting the Swarovski crystals onto the new camel for the Nativity collection.

Grace was trying the enamel colors for the first time on our impressive eagle figurine.

Alyson was making sure the Victorian Santa fit properly on the holly-decorated base that conceals the musical component (“Carol of the Bells”).

    My daughter, Christine and I have been Strongwater collectors for years and each piece we own has a special meaning for us. Our homes sparkle with tasteful magic due to the creative artistry of Joy Strongwater and his art for home decor.
