Small Treasures 1

Art comes in all sizes. So how much punch can you pack into something that's only 10 inches tall - or even smaller?

We are delighted to present Small Treasures 1.  

Enjoy! Glen & Marie Guarino

Looking at "Small Treasures", it is fascinating to consider the focus on  detail which was part of each artist's process. Only by looking at the measurements can one understand and appreciate the scale.

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!
