Three Crows Metalworks grew out of a mother/daughter bonding exercise. When Maggie and Diane Morrison took jewelry making and metalsmithing classes together, they realized that they had a knack and a drive for making jewelry. Husband and father, Lou, joined the efforts a few years later, and in 2019 when they decided to start their retail store in Sparta, they thought of crows, intelligent birds known to salvage shiny things. The family trio, committed to using recycled copper and silver, ethically mined gemstones, and eco-friendly packaging, decided to call their enterprise Three Crows Metalworks.
The retail space in Sparta occupies a building that dates to the early 1940s. Maggie also has a studio in Harlem, NY. The family’s deep love and respect for the natural environment and the natural artistry of the earth serves as a constant source of inspiration. Many of their designs are filled with mountain scenes, rivers, sunrises, sunset, birds, and flowers. Visitors can see Diane demonstrating metalsmithing and Cloisonné techniques and Lou creating chain mail and hammered copper jewelry. One of a kind hand-crafted jewelry is available for purchase including a variety of sterling cuff bracelets, pendants, chains, and rings with and without precious and/or semi-precious gemstones. Custom orders are also welcomed.
Hours: Thursday-Saturday, 11:00 am – 6:00 pm
