James Banks Design
James Banks Design creations manifest through Heidi Nahser Fink and Adam Shulman. The pieces are handmade in their Northern California studio in beautiful Marin County. They employ old-world techniques using hammers and stakes for forming, saws for piercing, and propane/oxygen torch for soldering. The creations are all hand finished. James Banks have also developed their own special inlay process with the butterflies where a frame is created and almost like a puzzle, various metals are carefully set into negative spaces to create our unique butterflies. Designers then experiment with the butterflies to bring the multi-metal inlay to life. James Banks Design also incorporates stone setting, primarily hand pave with precious stones such as diamonds, rubies, and sapphires.
