Relocating to NC


My wife and I are looking at relocating to the Durham/Chapel Hill area from Santa Fe. Was wondering if anyone could provide some info about the meatlasmithing/jewelry community in general and regarding possibility of renting studio space in that area.



Hi James, I own a retail jewelry design studio in Durham, just north of Chapel Hill. Durham is a wonderful town, the climate is awesome and the artistic community is extraordinarily strong. Send me a PM if you would like to discuss anything in particular. I have a feeling that the answers to your questions could be a little too broad a subject to discuss in this forum.



We just moved to Durham from FL! I haven’t visited these studios that I’ve found yet, but there is OQZO Metalsmith in Hillsborough, Liberty Arts downtown, James Carter Studio in Carrboro, and NC State Craft Center.

I agree with Dave, this area has such a strong artist community, it’s great!
