Hi Barbara,

No, I have never been invited to teach at Haystack. Instead, I've had the sole pleasure of working on my work.. and eating bacon! Teaching there is a 24/7 job.

They only have the BEST teachers, so you can consider yourself so!

Gorgeous collaborative necklace, by the way. Bet it brought in the big bucks.

I first attended Haystack in 1992, and feel fortunate to have been invited back every year since. While there, I created some of my most important works, in books, mixed media and clay. The experiences changed my life, and the people I met during those summers are precious.

Last year was probably my last, as I moved to Southern Californa to be closer to my family. As I no longer fly, other than in my dreams and imagination, trips across country to Maine will be difficult and costly. But Haystack (and its memories of limitless bacon and whipped cream) will always remain my Paradise.

 
 
 

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.
