Conference Chat with Aurelie Guillaume

Hello again, fellow intrepid makers! Today I’m sharing some tidbits and insights from a lovely conversation I had with Aurélie Guillaume, a fabulous art jeweler and enamelist from Montréal, Canada. Currently she is the artist in residence at Lillstreet Gallery, and will be their featured jewelry artist for the month of July. I spoke with her about her work, her current career path, and her thoughts on making a living in the “art jewelry…See More

Let's GO!!!

OH. MY. GOODNESS. Is there anything better than being in a room full of your fellow nerds? Really, I can’t think of anything. Especially when those nerds are METALSMITHS. I’m finally getting back in the swing of things after returning from New Orleans last week, and I gotta say… My final verdict on the SNAG conference is (drum roll please) IT’S AMAZING! YOU SHOULD DEFINITELY GO!!! Ok, I’ll try and cut out the shouting. But it’s been a week, and I’m still blown away by how great my first…See More

"There are two approaches to the pin swap. Option 1.Bring a lot of pins and trade with anyone. Option  2. Bring a limited quantity of top quality pins and trade pins carefully. (10-50 pins.) I am a little tired and disappointed with Option 1.…"

Nosy in New Orleans: Tell Me All Your Secrets

I’ve always been a nosy person: I want to know everything that’s going on, and why. Now that I’ve embarked on a career in the art jewelry and fine craft fields, my curiosity has found new focus. How did that artist get where they are? What advice do established makers have for others? How is everyone making a living? This blog is an opportunity to ask all the questions bouncing around in my head, and muse a bit in a more official format about my burgeoning career.See More

Welcome back, my lovelies! As I begin my blogging journey with the SNAG conference in mind, I’m thinking a lot about all the bits and pieces I have to accomplish before my trip. My goal is to squeeze out as much benefit as I can from this trip, and in typical fashion I try and control the uncontrollable by planning til exhaustion. So my conference prep checklist includes these big-ticket items:- Plan for the trunk show.The soft fiber in my work presents a challenge. Displays can’t be over half…See More

"Great idea! My question to artists is always, "How did you get here?" and you are dead on that the answer always varies. There is no single path to success, and there is no single definition of success. It is so open and fluid, and I think…"

When The Farrier Comes To Town

 Ian, the stable's farrier is a shy guy, but I got him to kick on his portable forge for y'all and allow us a quick peek inside his trailer. He said it's a mess inside and he's sorry about that. Lol! Like we don't know what metal working looks…See More
