Hi everyone -

Susan and I were with the fabulous Lorrene Baum Davis all day yesterday at Ann Davis's new classroom in her house.  Fantastic day but I got behind in processing incoming applications as a result.  Applications have been POURING in over the weekend.  Just FYI - I'm working through them - I promise I'll send you an e-mail and let you know your work has been received.  Please be patient with me!  :-)

Thanks everyone - again, AMAZING work is coming in - I think you will all be very pleased and proud of this!  Ann Davis is also the lead juror...and boy does she and her team have their work cut out for them!

Hugs, Christine

Hallowe'en Post

Last day of October and spooky hallowe'en is here again. I've never much bothered with the festival as I'm not much of a horror fan but this year I've been paying a bit more attention and have been finding it quite funny, especially the non-gendered gingerbread person biscuits which one of the fashion students had iced to look like skeletons:…See More

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!
