Carnavale in Bienne, watch makery, and random snap shots from the month!

I got to go to Carnavale in Bienne with some of my FInnish friends (and we are all going to Finland at the end of April as well!).  It was really fun and we had on proper costumes.  At first, we saw NO people in costume, but then realized it was still to early (only 10pm) and low and behold, more arrived after midnight. Europeans really know how to stay out all night.…See More

I had such a great time being a tourist in Paris, I want to go back and explore a bit more and some obscure things as well.  Next time Gadget, next time bwahhhahhhahhha.Some of the exhibition was able to be photographed, so I did so liberally.  This is a sketch in just ink, I think it's magnificent.  This reminds me of a doodle…See More

Paris, the city of chilly weather and wondrous things, part one the Louvre and surrounding area.

This past weekend I got to go to Paris to meet up with a great friend whom I haven't seen in ages.  She got to travel from Arizona to escort a Hopper painting home from the Grand Palais, so we did all the tourist things and had a great time.30 minutes after arriving in Paris, our hotel (Hôtel Masséna) was so close to the…See More

The new year is off to a great start

Christmas this year was interesting.  I decided that I would go to my butcher and ask for a turkey, not too big though.  She told me I could have 3-3.5 kg at the most and I said fine; although I was worried that wouldn't feed 5 people.  Tom got home and he seemed pretty small (because he wasn't a frozen butterball turkey, he was a wild(ish) one that still had feathers on his ankles giving the appearance of socks).  And this was my FIRST time cooking a turkey all alone, first time making…See More

Snowy and Beautiful

This winter we got our first snow in October and this month in particular, we have gotten about 3 1/2 feet of snow already.  Though this Christmas week, the temperatures are to soar to 11 degrees (celsius) so no more of the powdery fun stuff.These icicles just formed over the course of the weekend, so fast! …See More

Hike from Vallorbe to Orbe, downhill 92% of the way

So, just as the title suggests, I went hiking from Vallorbe which is 400 meters above Orbe, so it should have been easy, but we stopped to take pictures and pick berries and do things... And the adventure; if it can be called that, ended with a surprise lunch and of course, swimming in the lake at home! It was COLDThis sign was…See More

Gorgeous summer in Vallée de Joux

So these past 6 or so weeks (yikes, time has flown and I have no idea where it went), I have been busy with work, work, work and of course been hiking.  In addition, I have been running 2-3 days a week before aforementioned work and swimming 3 days a week after work.If you look closely here, that is ME on the slide…See More

Thanks for the kind comment!

 
 
 

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!

Arriving at this message is the goal of this traveling exhibition opening at the SNAG conference in Boston 2015, Velvet da Vinci, San Francisco, CA - Aug 19 - Sept 20, 2015, Equinox Gallery, San Antonio, TX - Oct 16 - Nov 15, 2015, Baltimore Jewelry Center, Baltimore, MD - Dec 11, 2015 - Jan 08, 2016, Brooklyn Metal Works, Brooklyn, NY - Feb 5 - Mar 4, 2016.

London and the South/Dundee and the North

Since my last post, I've been on the south coast of England, variously in London, Folkestone and Brighton. What should have been a very relaxing weekend proved to be anything but, albeit in a good way. Very good, in fact, as it kicked off with seeing Kate Bush perform her "Before The Dawn" concert at the Hammersmith Apollo.…See More
