On November 13, Michael and Ana Schwade lost their Jewelry Studio to a fire which burned it to the ground. Very, very little is left to salvage.

Last week I had the honor of visiting with Michael in this studio. I was in such awe of the amount of beautiful work he had been building for months. I saw tables filled with finished pieces...glorious and made with Michael's profound professional ability. These works where earmarked for the upcoming holiday season, and for the many retail galleries and museum stores which carry his brilliant work.

I saw years of collected, priceless tools and equipment arranged to outfit his environment of creation. I saw love and inspiration in every area of the studio.

In our region, Michael Schwade is considered one of the finest of jewelers. He, and his wife Ana, have been traveling to many shows through the years. They also have a winter home in Florida near other shops, galleries which have high demand for his creations. 

These things have made Michael and Ana into an amazing team. And into a couple of our best neighbors. Hard working, focused and community minded they have given us so much. 

It's time for us to give back...and help Michael and Ana rebuild, re-equip and establish a new studio in which the creating of beauty can continue. 

The funds collected through Fundrazr.com will go directly to the purchase of equipment. Insurance will replace the building. (Hopefully.) But no amount of insurance can cover the multitude of tools he uses, or the total loss of months of labor put into his current, distroyed creations.
