Dirigible Designs

Dirigible Designs is Blake Smith and Melanie Schlossberg; each began metalworking as teenagers. Melanie studied metalsmithing at Syracuse University in upstate New York and Blake made custom jewelry while running a bronze foundry business in the Texas hill country. Working out of two studios, one in Houston for metalworking and one in Austin for lapidary work, they have been crafting Dirigible Designs together since 2015. “At Dirigible Designs, we fabricate sterling silver jewelry that uses hand-cut, fortunately-found, and wisely-collected stones and materials. Our jewelry explores the tension between asymmetry and balance, the concept of the mundane versus the precious, and the collaboration of design and ideas between partners. We provide collectors with wearable comfortable jewelry that expresses their bold and unique styles. 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.”
