fiber, jewelry, metals, metal clay, mixed media, paper, polymer clay, pmc, other, I create and specialize in one-of-a-kind art jewelry. Each piece is unique and meticulously executed using quality materials. Sterling and pure fine silver comprise the body of many designs and polymer clay, resin, and seed beaded works have become more prevalent in my recent pieces. Precious and semi-precious gemstones, vintage glass, and lampworked beads add rich embellishment to the bracelets and necklaces I create. Carved bone, found objects, and other non-traditional materials are often added to my designs as accents. I’ve also made cloisonné enamel the focal point of a number of pieces. Sterling and fine silver sheet and silver metal clays ( PMC®, Art Clay Silver™), bronze metal clay (BronzClay™), and copper (CopprClay™) are materials used to hand fabricate many of my beads and charms. Creating one-of-a-kind pieces keeps my work fresh, allowing new ideas to burst forth.
I just found your message on CraftHaus. (I'm not active here.) You have a double wall from a long time ago??? I'd love to see what it looks like. Have you given it a thorough wash lately (lots of warm water, and a bit of soap)?
“While striving to incorporate fashion and function in my body of work, Joe’s was created. Reflecting on the glamor once held by tobacco use, I pulled imagery from vintage cigarette advertisements. Once used to seduce the consumer, I take this now taboo subject matter and place it over the belt as a means of advertising and seduction of both the product and body. This reminds my audience of the cultural change that has evolved into the disapproval of tobacco usage and advertising.”

"The incident everyone is demurring about happened on the Facebook site Metalsmith's Unite. Not sure why we are so circumspect in just saying this out loud. MU grew in size and notoriety rapidly and was a hot bed of bad online behavior, marked…"

I witnessed a bunch of troublesome ‘discussions’ this past week. Not on crafthaus and not directed at me personally, but troublesome nevertheless. They also weren’t real discussions either, as in: a respectful exchange of opinions where one side hears the other out. It…
