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!

Arriving at this message is the goal of this traveling exhibition opening at the SNAG conference in Boston 2015, Velvet da Vinci, San Francisco, CA - Aug 19 - Sept 20, 2015, Equinox Gallery, San Antonio, TX - Oct 16 - Nov 15, 2015, Baltimore Jewelry Center, Baltimore, MD - Dec 11, 2015 - Jan 08, 2016, Brooklyn Metal Works, Brooklyn, NY - Feb 5 - Mar 4, 2016, Thomas Mann's Gallery I/O April 1 - June 25, 2016.
