Hello everyone in this blogging group.

I was wondering if your blog would benefit by sharing some resources with the artists that follow your blog.

I can give you links to the Professional Guidelines, information about our new brochures for your readers, information about the upcoming Professional Development Seminar about Niche Marketing and Photography in Flux, and more...

Please let me know what would be most helpful.

Harriete

Here is a link to my blog http://nicola-reed.blogspot.com/

 

I like to document my own work as well as keeping up to date with contemporary jewellery.

 

I will soon be using a blog to document my new collaborative collection with textile designer Sara Nevay, which will act as markers of reflection in the making process.

Please follow me :)

Thank you Melissa for following my blog. I appreciate a lot your comment, for me comunication is the most important and I like to share information with people around the world. I visit also your blog and I think that we can understand much more your work, personal blog approaches the artist to us.

"group dedicated to the experimental use of the blog format as a means of communication and critique"

I think that statement has encapsulated the best blogs that I follow; (and of course Montserrat's is one of them) communication and critique. There's a lot out there that offer communication, but reasoned and reasonable critique is a harder thing to find. I think this forum is a great idea, and I'm glad of the mission statement - something to strive for.

I am brand new to the blogging world.  I have never felt that my writing was something that someone else would be interested in.  I am also a bit perplexed as to what I would write about.  I teach jewelry classes and techniques and when I make a statement like this my students are always surprised.  I just don't see myself as a wealth of information.  I am hoping that my blogging will help me to share information to others without boring them to tears!!!!

Well, I don't know about everyone else but my favorite part of blogging is seeing that people are looking at my blog!

I use Blogger and I recently learned about Blogger stats, which gives you not only how many people are looking at your website but what they are looking at and where they came from.  I realized after adding stats to my blogger page that the biggest group of visitors come to my blog looking for images of artist work.  So I decided to create more posts about the artists that I am looking at and I've seen a big jump in traffic. 

 

That is what is motivating me to blog!

 

To see your stats in blogger just type draft.blogger.com and you will see a STATS option on your dashboard and go see stats!  Here is an article about it:

I hope this gets your blogging juices flowing!

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.

"This piece is so beautiful. I look at it often."
yesterday

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!

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