Fabulous song choice. My personal anthem.

So who likes what type of coffee around here? I must confess that my personal preference is Dunkin Donuts. Oh, and Starbucks is way too strong for me. Don't know what that says about me psychologically speaking but there you have it.

We love coffee, flavored regular, and espresso. Coffee is a required beverage for us in the morning.

Marie is beginning her 3-day marathon cooking for Christmas.  I am working on a new coffee table for ICFF show. 

We hope everyone have a wonderful holiday

Dear Glen and Marie,

Thanks for asking me to submit and thanks for your time for that.

It looks great, like a present of Christmas from you.I am looking at these pieces with a cup of lemon tea. hah!!!

Brigitte, I agree with you about coffee at Starbucks, it is hardly for me to go there.

My small solo exhibition will hold at Peters Valley Craft Center, if Marie and you have time, please stop by, since Marie told me you guys live close to PVCC.

Merry Christmas and happy new year to you all!!!

Hi Bifei,  Thank you for letting us know & congratulations on your solo show. Your work is beautiful.   When does your solo exhibit at Peters Valley end? 

All the best!!!

Hey Glen,

Happy new year!  my exhibition opens January 14 - "Metal - Morphic"

Please Joining for an Opening Reception on Saturday, January 14th from 4-7pm, more details go, http://petersvalley.org/

I look forward to seeing Marie and you!

Best,

Glen

All my best

Bifei

Looking forward to seeing the show on Saturday during the day. Just looked at the preview on line, looks awesome!!! 

Glen 

This is a very beautiful exhibition. What a gorgeous collection of items for the home (and heart). Thanks for putting this together for all of us to see.

Linda

And...damn if that's not the penultimate version of Java Jive (and the original), man. Thanks for offering it up to us all. I'm off coffee forever I'm afraid, but it doesn't stop me from loving the aroma and for really diggin' the jive.

Linda

MIne, too, Brigiite.

For my annual Valentines Day dessert party, I've put together a disc: the Ink Spots, The Andrew Sisters, Bessie Smith, Bing, Frank, Ella, Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers, Nat King Cole and Louis Armstrong. etc... all love songs.

I discovered Equator Alligator Coffee and I'm hooked. Pricey, but worth it.

My other favorite coffee is Haystack Mountain School of Crafts Organic Blend which can only be ordered from Porto Rico Coffee in New York City by phone: (212) GR7-5421 (Yes, that's GR for Gramercy)

Here's to a better New Year than the last.

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.

DETAILS on exhibition premise, call for artists, submission guidelines.....

Rachel and Brigitte will be appearing on the wonderful Jay Whaley Metalsmith Benchtalk Radio Show, talking about the Co:Operation Garnish project, how they came up with the idea, what the project is about and the plans moving forward.

The radio show will be LIVE on air September 25, 2014 @ 6PM EST / 3 PM Pacific.

Behind the Brooch part 2

I am happy to share with all of you more images of wonderful brooches from artists around the word. I had so many submissions on my first call that I had to create a second part exhibition. This exhibition focuses on a side of the brooch we usually do not pay much attention to: the back side. Our first look is naturally always trained at the front, but when we do take the time to look at the back of a brooch, it will oftentimes reveal a surprising aspect for us, a delightful little secret.

Artisanal Pencil Sharpening

"Boy am I glad I saw this. I learned, or thought I learned how to sharpen a pencil with a jack knife at my father's knee. But he neglected to tell me how lucrative it could be, and how exacting. If David Rees would have been my mentor, I would…"
