"I tend to agree with Brigitte. The lack of color contrasts between the work and the display have always bothered me. My work is wholly dependent on the display itself, which I regard equally to the work. In my quest to bring the relatively small…"
"I'm just glad I own four original pieces of Geno's amazing work. Luckily, I acquired them early in his career. I am quite sure I can't afford them now at Smithsonian prices.
I'm enjoying your work very much! I like making stands for my work sometimes too - it really creates a special space for the object. Your's is very clean and minimal, but very efficient and beautiful. Love them!
Thanks for the welcome Brandon... and thanks for telling me about this, I'm really happy have this made this connection. I already know lots of people here, great way to be in touch with them and many more artists! Cathy

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.

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!

Since my last post, I've been on the south coast of England, variously in London, Folkestone and Brighton.

I started learning English from the age of 4 while growing up in Italy, and I was fully bilingual by the time…"
