Little Metal Foxes

"As we talked about creating this wonderful opportunity, we found ourselves aligning with some of the characteristics of foxes – they are transformative, clever, resourceful, and playful. We felt a kinship to this creature that seems part cat and part dog. They are beautiful creatures found around the world."


Emily Marquis is a professional Goldsmith & seasoned instructor in the fabrication of precious metal jewelry.  Her husband, Cal McNamara, has been training at the bench since 2017, shortly after meeting Emily. In 2020 they moved their business back to their home state of Connecticut after 8 years in Washington, DC. During this time in DC, Emily taught year-round for JewelryClassDC and worked as a bench jeweler for the premier jewelry store in the city. Moving to the shoreline has given them the opportunity to expand their offerings while becoming part of the local community here in Stonington.
