Start clearing out those studio closets and get your spring cleaning going because the annual Jewelry Tools & Supply Swap Meet is coming soon!
We still have a few vendor spaces open if you’d like to unload all of those items that we all seem to collect in our studios but just aren’t using or don’t need. In the past people have swapped everything from stones and beads to enameling equipment so you never know what you’ll find.
Nothing you want to get rid or still building your studio? This is a great way to find tools for really low prices. Last year I picked up two hammers and a plier stand for $8…sweet deal. Plus we always have a Free table…I wonder what hidden treasures will be on it this year?
Don’t forget to mark your calendar for Sunday, April 2 from 9am-12pm. If you’d like to reserve a vendor spot give us a call at 206-542-0916 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Danaca Design is located at 5619 University Way NE, Seattle WA. You can find plenty of free street parking on our block and the surrounding neighborhood. We hope to see you 🙂
Our annual jewelry tool and supply swap meet is almost here! Next Saturday, March 12, 10am-1pm come join us as we clear out some old tools and snag some deals on new ones.
A few of our vendors have been sending us some preview pictures of the tools and supplies they are planning on bringing. It already looks like this will be a great meet.
One of our vendors is looking to sell her enamel set up. Look at all these luscious colors that will be for sale! I love that they come with swatches already made up…what a bonus!
Anyone looking for a torch? This appears to be a complete setup for an acetylene/air torch.
I spy with my little eye….lots and lots of tools!
Need a buffing wheel?
You will have to stop by the swap meet to see all these goodies and I can’t wait to see what else shows up on Saturday. There are always lots of great surprises to be found and the swap meet turns into a social gathering to boot. My suggestion is to come early but you can find great deals the whole day.

We have two special events coming up at Danaca Design:
Tool and Supply Swap Meet
Saturday, March 12, 10am-1pm
Come out for our annual tool and supply swap meet. A variety of vendors will be here with tools and supplies to swap or buy. It is always a great time! You don’t need to have tools of your own to swap…cash works too. Or maybe you will find a treasure on our free table. The swap meet is a great place if you are just getting started to find tools and supplies at great prices.
House Rules! Show
Saturday, May 7, 6pm-9pm
The House Rules! is an annual fundraising event highlighting the Danaca Design Studio “crew”. The “crew” is a widely varied group of artists who help out with administration and maintenance, studio monitors, and gallery attendants. We feature studio staff and members in the gallery, raffle a collaborative neckpiece and host a silent auction.
All raffle and auction money goes to fund the Danaca Design Jewelry Art Stimulus Fund, our scholarship program.
Raffle tickets are only $5.00 and are available in the studio, from someone in the crew, or at the event!
This is a great opportunity to support the studio and its crew, get a gift for Mother’s day, support a student and maybe take home the grand prize, an outrageously cool necklace! Please join us to celebrate. We will have delicious treats from Bodrum Bistro in Wallingford.
See our website for more details about upcoming events, our studio, and our scholarship program. We hope to see you at an event soon!

You have your date, made dinner reservations, now there is just one last item to prepare for the perfect Valentine’s day…the perfect gift! Luckily we have you covered: jewelry, tools, and gift certificates for classes…we have great ideas no matter what your sweetie loves.
Rings make a wonderful gift and we have a wide selection from traditional bands to one of a kind designs. How do you figure out a ring size for a gift without asking and spoiling the surprise? If you can sneak and get one of your sweeties rings trace both the inside and outside diameter of the ring on a piece of paper. Bring the ring tracing with you when you shop and we can help you figure out the size.
But if rings aren’t what you are looking for we have a wide selection of necklaces, bracelets, and earrings too!
But what if your sweetie isn’t as interested in getting jewelry as much as making jewelry? We offer beginner and intermediate jewelry classes such as our popular Beginning Intro: Rings and Stacking Rings With Gemstones classes. Our next Beginning Intro Rings class will be coming up in spring quarter, May 14-15, but we still have space available in our Stacking Rings with Gemstones class on March 26.
To see the rest of our class schedule go to www.danacadesign.com and to register either stop by or call us at 206-524-0916
Still not sure? We offer gift certificates in all denominations that can be used on any jewelry, classes, or supplies. Perfect!
Danaca Design is a jewelry and small-scale metal working facility located in the University District of Seattle. We offer a wide range of classes for individuals seeking to gain skill in the art of decorative metal work and jewelry making.

If you are like me you happened to look at your calendar today and noticed that Christmas is just 4 days away. And if you are like me you also realized that you haven’t finished your Christmas shopping either.
Well, we may not be able to help you find things for everyone on your list but we can at least help you find a great gift for the metalsmith on your list.
Here are our top picks for gifts under $50:
Parallel Action Pliers ($35.95):
Parallel action pliers are the pliers every metalsmith needs to own whether they realize it or not. Made so that the jaws of the pliers remain parallel as they open and close which allows for a secure grip even under very firm pressure. The perfect tool for setting stones and working with wire but has so many more uses.
Electric Torch Lighter ($29.95):
Anyone who works with a torch would be happy with this gift. Light the torch in a second without having to use a fiddly flint striker. Trust us this will be a hit.
Ceramic Honeycomb Soldering Block ($8.95):
This lightweight block reflects heat and has little holes so you can add pins to hold your work in place while soldering. The holes also help dissipate heat quickly, which is useful for soldering small delicate items that you do not want to overheat.
Still don’t know what to get…let them pick out exactly the right thing with a Danaca Design gift certificate. Either stop in our store to pick one up or call us to pay by credit card and we can mail it for you. Don’t forget to let them know that our tool and supply sale is going on until Dec 30th – 20% off!
Happy Holidays from all of us at Danaca Design!
