Steve Gordon and Dana Reeves will be talking with Allison Stackpole, founder and lead designer of BLO Vintage Jewelry, about how she got her start, where her inspiration comes from, the challenges - and joys - of having her pieces sold in retail locations nationwide, and the role philanthropy plays in her business.
BLO Vintage is a unique Atlanta-based jewelry line that incorporates vintage and antique whistles, harmonicas, and pitch pipes into each piece, combining elements of design, history and personal safety. BLO Vintage offers five collections: Breathe, Boheme, Harmony, Dream, and Pitch. Each design incorporates a vintage or antique whistle, harmonica or pitch pipe, varying from a beautifully crafted railroad station Masters's whistle, circa 19th century England, to a petite, sweet-sounding sterling silver toy whistle from America in the 70s. Designed with a sense of whimsy and combining form with function, BLO Vintage offers a truly unique experience for the wearer. Through her extraordinary line of one of kind pieces, Allison uses a variety of mixed metals, rich deerskins, vintage silks and organic stones which are all blended to enhance the history and personality of each unique piece. BLO Vintage is a proud supporter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Our guest on Metalsmith Benchtalk on Thursday, September 18th, 2014 at 3:00 PDT/ 6:00 EDT is Reba Engel, jewelry designer, metalsmith and former student of Jay Whaley!
We encourage you to participate in this live interview by logging into the chatroom or sending a message to Whaley Studio's Facebook Page.
About Reba: “Little did I know that my first jewelry project as a child, assembling broken pieces of my mother’s costume jewelry from a shoebox, would inspire a career! A high school class taught me the fundamentals of fabricating jewelry and I was hooked."
This passion for jewelry led to my first bold collection in 1999 — clearly an expression of my Bachelors in Applied Arts and a career in architectural design. These engineered pieces were cut out by my computer drawings and a water-jet system; a nontraditional metalsmithing process suggested to me by my college jewelry professor, Arline Fisch. As I construct the cast originals, I modify the technological feeling of the forms with hand applied finishes.
Over the years, my work has remained modern yet it has evolved with more fabricated designs and custom cut gemstones. My first job introduced me to the fashion industry where I spent several years and influenced my love for textiles, sewing, embroidery and hand painting fabric. From that inspiration, I developed a needlework series where I crochet chain and weave precious beads onto chain to drape like fabric as well as etch patterns onto metal in relief.
