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.

Each of the participants received identical kits with materials which in the end would be bent, hammered, stretched, soldered, riveted and morphed into the finished pieces. They were given a timeline of 6 weeks to complete and return the finished piece. Photos were taken of everybody’s pieces and a luncheon was held for the members to vote on…Continue

Hey Hey. A LOT has been going on so it's hard to pick what to update you on first ;)I guess I'll reach back a bit. Sometimes being a busy busy designer like Michael Schmidt means that you have to delegate and rely on your team from far away. –Michael was in New York the week this project was brought to us [thank goodness for Skype!]. This is a hammered aluminum neckpiece that Cher used in her newest music video "Woman's World."…Continue

Behind the Scenes: The Making of The MAGIC Moustache

Today we will walk through the making of the Aficionado Studios Detachable Re-attachable MAGIC Moustache, which is a plastic novelty brooch with a neodymium, or “rare earth,” magnet inside. The secret to this parlor trick is a second magnet concealed in the wearers mouth, between the upper front teeth and upper lip. *…Continue

I rather enjoy that my job brings new and exciting experiences. This is one of the benefits of working with Michael Schmidt Studios, as the jobs are usually of interest and challenging. For our most recent endeavor, I’ve taken up “rope-smithing.”Below is a photograph of the knotted rope sculpture Michael Schmidt designed for the new Whole Foods at Fashion Island, Newport Beach, CA.…Continue
