Have a grand time at the signing. Wish I lived that direction - I'd be there.

Would love to, but won't be passing Pittsburgh until July, when I will claim a signing from you anyway!

I'd be the first one in line if I lived in Pittsburgh.

Thanks guys!! I will be grinning from one ear to the other :-)

Barnes and Noble are really great with the event. If any of you has a book out or coming out, I highly recommend to get in touch with your local book store(s) for signings. It was actually easy to set up and they are very good with their authors...

A modern metalsmith/metal artist can be found working in traditional metals as well as in nontraditional materials. The designs can range from the classic to the extravagant, and the techniques can either be centuries old or decidedly current.

The wide range of expression preferences, design options, materials, and processes has lead within our field to unfavorable misconceptions, misunderstandings and in some cases even outright disdain between artists. Can the metal and jewelry field overcome its division and send out a much-needed signal?

We appreciate and respect our historical past and acknowledge that current materials have a rightful place in jewelry/object making!

"Thank you, Ann. I cannot take credit for this show though. Professor Astfalck and her students put this up, not me. I'm sure they're happy to hear you find the work interesting! Thanks."

London and the South/Dundee and the North

Since my last post, I've been on the south coast of England, variously in London, Folkestone and Brighton. What should have been a very relaxing weekend proved to be anything but, albeit in a good way. Very good, in fact, as it kicked off with seeing Kate Bush perform her "Before The Dawn" concert at the Hammersmith Apollo.…See More
