The Sporadic Work Journal of an Aficionado

  The Sporadic Chronicle was created to document projects completed by Angelina Ciulik. The projects in the following discussions may be for some of the world’s top entertainers, or they may something sophisticated for Aficionado Studios. Either way, I would like to share them with you.  But who am I?

Tools for Sophistication, The Cigarette Holder

    My name is Angelina, and upon receiving my dual BFA degree in Drawing & Painting and Metals & Jewelry from CSULB, I began my search for a position that would allow me to expand my skills and challenge my acuity. I was fortunate to quickly find work in the jewelry industry designing and overseeing production. While seeing the back-end of the industry was enlightening, to say the least, it didn’t fully utilize my metalworking experience. I landed a position working with Michael Schmidt Studios’ team of talented artisans, which has strengthened my abilities and continues to challenge me. 

 

Tools for Sophistication, The Moustache and Monocle

    Although the work that I do for the entertainment industry is exciting, my passion lies in the work that I do for my jewelry line, art/novelty line, and fine art under the guise Aficionado Studios.  

    So, metalsmith trying to turn wordsmith here... I would like to extend an invitation to you to read my work journal.  Please, follow me on this journey.
