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

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!

Texas!

I've just got back from almost a week in the Lone Star State which I was visiting on the invitation of my friends and colleagues, James Thurman and Umut Demirguc Thurman. What a trip!

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.
