"Miel. It was such an excellent weekend. I'm really glad we got to spend a little down time last Sunday after the workshop. I've been itching to make some ball sockets and do some chasing and repousse. Hope our paths cross again soon.
I thought you might be in Pittsburgh for the weekend. Would have been great to catch up.

I'm excited to see everyone's work in person.
Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner - regarding powder coating I'd try www.eastwood.com and www.caswellplating.com and a quick search turned up www.powderbuythepound.com (never used them before).

Totally jealous...this is something I really want to get my students doing, too!
You are VERY welcome !! I wanted to definitely get that in before your special date, knowing that you'd have your hands full on or around Oct 31 :-)

The Metal Arts Society of Southern California invited its membership to enter into a jewelry challenge as an avenue to participate and push themselves. Each of the participants received identical kits with materials which in the end would be bent, hammered, stretched, soldered, riveted and morphed into the finished pieces. They were given a timeline of 6 weeks to complete and return the finished piece. Photos were taken of everybody’s pieces and a luncheon was held for the members to vote on…See More
Day 3 was a busy and productive day. We started with a slide show, which included my, now, favorite work by Pat Hickman. I can’t remember what it is called, but they are little lizards, that she FOUND dead and encased in gut…superb!Our assignment for today was to think about time:…See More
