Dear Filep and iDEALS, I stopped by Andy Lifschutz's Bushwick design studio last week unsure of what I might find. I'd discovered his unique jewelry line at an event and eagerly got in touch via email to set up this studio tour, but hadn't actually met Andy himself. Would he be a little old man with a monocle inspecting errant flecks of gold?
A lanky hipster working out of his apartment's kitchen? Well, it turns out Andy Lifschutz is *Le total babe*, a studly Boring, Oregon transplant whose determination to defy the name of his hometown has resulted in a truly spectacular artistic output. And his studio? One of those dreamy white boxes with big windows in a converted factory, of course! Layered with knick-knacks and personal paraphernalia, the space doubles as a showroom for clients seeking out custom pieces.
To see all of the different collections, visit Andy online - then follow him on Twitter and Instagram! PLUS I made a short video to accompany this post - really just a taste of what it's like to be in the studio while Andy's working. Check it out below.
