Alice, I love your entry for Signature Work - Part 2!!! There are so many exhibits on the 'books' that Part 2 is a bit away. But getting entries now really helps me so I can put yours together in my spare time.

Aha! Now not only do I know what Signature Work Part One is/was, I am a Member!

It is not easy to identify one's own signiture work.  If I had to pick a piece that was representational of who I am as an artist, I would probably pick one that had the following qualities:  humor, color, realistic subject matter, symbolism and  a communicative message.

Part 2 is coming your way in 2013. There has been a lot of demand for exhibitions and the soonest is August 2013. The call is posted and I hope everyone interested sends in their entries.

So many intrigueing works to explore. Well done. I would definitely love the chance to display my signature piece in Part Deux!

keep me in the loop! I have several wonderful pieces that I feel really express who I am as an artist and a person. If you are looking for submissions just give me the word! Great collection all around though, beautiful and unique works of art.

Yes, Pat! Part two would be a fantastic idea. I would certainly submit something. This one has been great. Thanks for offering to repeat what I know is a lot of work.

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, Thomas Mann's Gallery I/O April 1 - June 25, 2016.
