In the studio

Explore behind the scenes in the Compass Rose Design Studio. All our work is handmade just north of San Francisco, California, and reflects a bit of treasure renewed into a unique and beautiful keepsake. We work with genuine antiques. 

Artifacts of daily life, ready to be transformed.

We work with a million tiny pieces. We love what we do.

We tend to have several projects going at once, but we separate work spaces by medium - beading, chain and wire, metalwork etc.
