Matt James founded Gem Studio in City Creek Center 4 years ago. He started it in a shed in his friend's backyard and it's grown to find a place in the community.
Those visiting, make their own jewelry under the guidance of an instructor. Customers not only get a handcrafted piece of art, they also get a memory.
Those constructing a piece learn from start to finish how to make their design, even using the blow torch.
James is a co-founder of a Ugandan orphanage and a portion of Gem Studio profits go to supporting projects to support the people living in Uganda.
