All photos by Sara Kerens


Welcome to the second installment of Profiles In Pictures, a photo series brought to you by The Mixmaster.
Every couple of weeks we'll profile a Dallas natives who, in some form or another, create. Shot by photographer Sara Kerens, (check out the premier PIP post here) and accompanied by a Q&A with the subject, PIP offers an intimate look at local creatives, as well as peek into their worlds.

This week, we are happy to peer into the the jewelry-making monde of Shannah Frank, the metal smith behind f. is for frank. Take a look at the pictures and read Shannah's frank words for yourself after the jump.


Who are you, what do you do, who do you do it for, and where do you do it?
I am Shoshannah (Shannah) Frank and one half of f. is for frank. F. is for frank designs and manufactures jewelry, hardware, furniture and sculpture for jewelry enthusiasts, architects, interior designs or folks that have a vision that they want brought to life. We have an awesome studio just outside of the design district that has plenty of space for Casey and I, our three dogs and Walker the 10 month old crawling machine!

What do you find the most satisfying about what you do, and why?
The feedback we get for our clients and the excitement on there face when they realize how rad we are. Sometimes you are not so sure how they are going to react! I also enjoy solving a problem within a design that seems impossible.
