Perch Jewelry Studio of Auburn, located on 416 S Gay St., will be transitioning to an online, virtual studio starting June 1. Opened in 2009 by Barbara Birdstrong, the studio was designed with the mission to create, collaborate and inspire.

“Perch has been a wonderful chapter in our life, a bridge to a post military career at Auburn, but we can’t maintain a physical presence with extremely limited revenue after being closed for almost two months. Even when AL opens up, the restrictions of social distancing, etc… are impractical for us as a business,” Birdsong wrote on the business’s official Facebook page.

Starting May 4, Perch will be opened with limited hours and 30% off of everything in store.
