About Lorrie Mason

I have recently opened a storefront location in South Tampa on Henderson Blvd.  It is called "On The Fringe", and is a boutique for handcrafted jewelry, unique clothing, and local products.  3646 Henderson Blvd.  Tampa  33609 I have been making jewelry since 1990.  I operated a pushcart style vending business on Tampa's Franklin Street pedestrian Mall for 4 years while in college.  I obtained a BA in psych from USF and worked in Vocational Rehabilitation for 10 years.  Since having a daughter in 2003, I joyfully returned to my passion for silversmithing.    I've been selling jewelry at Fine Art Shows for 11 years. working from a large studio at the Santaella Cigar Factory in old West Tampa, fabricating and teaching classes. Learning about metalsmithing and it's properties continues to be an inspiration for me.  I try to let go and be a channel for a product that feels beautiful and fulfilling, while incorporating reclaimed metals as a statement. I am thrilled to offer the community a storefront location to purchase handcrafted jewelry and to take classes in the art of metalsmithing.
