Eric Messin Design Studio specializes in creating high-end custom jewelry, typically made with silver or gold and precious stones, for its clients. Relying on his 20 years of experience, Messin will work with clients on the design and then hand craft the piece using the finest materials. The shop itself is located in a former silversmith shop that opened in the 18th century. Messin, who grew up in France and is the son of an artist, also offers jewelry-making classes, with proceeds from the classes going to the Southampton Historical Museum. The class, which teaches students to create a silver ring from start to finish, is ideal for beginners and experienced jewelrymakers alike.
