EatMetal, Inc by Elizabeth Ann Tokoly (Monroe Center)
EatMetal is a very catchy (even weird) sounding name for local Metal Smith Elizabeth Ann Tokoly, who runs her operation out of the Monroe Center (720 Monroe Street Suite 511). But as you can see, it has nothing to do with consuming metal – it’s just her initials!
What is EatMetal exactly?
I became interested in this business after mentioning the Metal Masters show last week, and realizing we hadn’t checked out what this was all about. EatMetal is TWO things:
- It’s a very unique place to get quality hand-made metal jewelry. One of a kind creations for that special person in your life (including yourself!) Jewelry for any budget too.
- Classes. A place to learn about jewelry-making (classes up to 8 weeks long), or single workshops and event “group learning parties” where you and your friends can host a private event for a few hours over some cocktails while making your own jewelry you can keep and take home!
Elizabeth characterizes her work as “echoing the gracefulness of organic characteristics of nature.” And adds that her pieces have “a minimal aesthetic” while exhibiting “simple lines, primary forms, shapes or structures.”
“The work uses systems, arrangement and distribution of components consisting of more that one part, element or bit,” Elizabeth says, “It is an evolution of a form into an object or piece of wearable art.”
The one-day workshops are three-hours long, and cost only $85 (which includes costs of materials and tools). Remember you can take what you make home and show your friends.
Some upcoming workshops are seen below.
