Why the Name Lab Partners?
Nope, we’ve never been actual lab partners, but we did meet in college many years ago. (Though, if we had been, we both would have done better in chemistry.)
The name Lab Partners began as a joke. One evening John was running various experiments in the studio. The chemical etching baths were going (a decidedly stinky process), the 3D printer was whirring away peacefully, the CO2 laser cutter was zapping something, and several other projects were scattered about in various stages of chaos. Joanna looked up from what she was working on and said, “This isn’t an art studio, it’s a science lab.” Thus, Lab Partners was born. The “partners” part is every bit as true as the “lab” part. We design, make, and produce all of our jewelry pieces together.
