Poet and/the Bench
We are husband and wife makers and curators, Jeffrey Levin and Bonnie Powers, and this is our workshop and creative space for jewelry, art, home goods and beautifully crafted objects. Curated by design.
Jeffrey has been a jeweler and designer for 30 years, originally from Cape Town, South Africa. Bonnie’s career has been in advertising and design agencies in Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco. We are inspired by and celebrate the artist narrative and beautiful objects. Poet and/the Bench is also Jeffrey’s jewelry workshop where he creates fine and custom jewelry for women and men. Talk to him about engagement rings, wedding rings, special occasion gifts and reimagining old heirlooms into new ones.
We carry other jewelry lines, presented in a slow curation model, from artists that honor the craft. You’ll also discover made and found objects from craftsmen and craftswomen sourced from our journeys, musings and collaborations—like gorgeous wheel thrown pottery and mid-century modern home decor—and fine art that reflects thoughtful investigations of subjects and inspirations curated each quarter.
