Pittsburg is known for a lot of things (we’re looking at you Primanti Bros), but above all else, it’s known for being steel country. So it’s no surprise that Michael Studebaker, a Pittsburgh native, is making his living off manipulating metal into every day objects. Working out of a basement studio, Studebaker bends metals like brass and silver to his will, turning out products using traditional methods that command respect.
The Hand-Forged Twisted Tie Clip is an example of how old school metal working produces superior, made-to-last products. It’s hand crafted from a single piece of high quality American brass, so it gets better looking with time. The metal was twisted by hand, adding subtle detail to the everyday piece. Studebaker stamps each product with his name and “Pittsburgh”, reminding you where your heirloom-worthy piece was born.
