I adore your work, Anne.  It's not only beautifully crafted ornament, it's also ART!

I'll be at Fiesta as well, and just in TX for that one too. I was hoping to piggy back a few but not this time. Then I'll fly home, jump in car and head to tennessee for 4 Bridges.(ahh) If you stick with Fiesta, let's get dinner one night :)

well, i said yes to fiesta today.  right now i have nothing around it except wait-listed for atlanta dogwood so there's still the possibility i'll withdraw.  rejected from everything else in tx again.  i get a little down about it sometimes.  but, lots of ideas so i keep forging ahead.  how about you?

I love the energy of these rings! Hope to see you next season Anne :)

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!

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.
