Catherine Chandler commented on Brigitte Martin's blog post How Etsy Alienated Its Crafters and Lost Its Soul
"Luckily, I have never operated under the illusion that I could make and sell my work and that alone could be my income. I have always known that I would need a steady "day job" to carry me financially. Perhaps once I get into wholesale…"

"Yes, I'm familiar with these feelings--usually nearing the deadline of creating something! Everything has turned out marvelously. Sometimes it's best to take the night off, walk away, and come back with fresh eyes the next day. Or to…"

"Wow, I really liked hearing I'm not alone in my same trepidation of failures that "might" happen. It just goes to show how important it is to read/ communicate in these blogs. Thank you!"

"This is a situation everyone faces at some point, and it keeps coming back in irregular intervals. As you already said, the best thing to do is to work through this despite the trepidations. My suggestion is to actually start with the task that…"

Good Morning Catherine, Thank you for the complement. We know how difficult it is to get out of the studio, turn on the computer & find artist calls.

Hi Catherine,

We jury some Crafthaus shows & want to invite you to look at our current calls:

Earthly Pleasures http://crafthaus.ning.com/group/crafthausexhibition/forum/topics/open-call-earthly-pleasures

Me, Myself and I http://crafthaus.ning.com/group/crafthausexhibition/forum/topics/open-callme-myself-and-i

Our purpose in curating shows is to promote good artwork. We try to make the process as painless as possible.

For Off the Floor which opening August 6 we received 65 images from Crafthaus artists. A show at Crafthaus has more of an audience then a gallery, it offers a permanent stage. We do love gallery shows, but here at Crafthaus submission is easy, doesn't cost anything for members.
I hope you will consider submitting.

The...breaking?...point

Posted on February 10, 2015 at 10:30pm 3 Comments

I am at that point. The point where the lid to the vial/locket is mocking me, refusing to do what I need it to, and where the to-do list is weighing heavily on my mind. The point where I suddenly fear going into the studio because of the failures that might happen. I know this point well. It's the point that I…

It's been a while since my last post here--I'll try to be better, I swear. In the past few years, I have finished my second BFA, this one from the Oregon College of Art and Craft. My thesis body of work, titled Refrain, is about communication.

OCAC Annual Jewelry Sale!!!

Every year, the Oregon College of Art and Craft's Metals Department holds a jewelry sale to raise funds for their Visiting Artist Fund.

This money goes towards bringing in a visiting artist to teach a weekend

workshop to students at the school. It is also great exposure for

students and alumni, as well as a fantastic place to find great gifts

Scrounge

Scrounging for materials and tools is a central part of my studio practice, and there are great bargains to be found!  In the past year, I’ve purchased a nice amount of silver for about $2/ounce, received several pounds of enamels, and refurbished hundreds of rusty chasing tools.  Luck has a lot of influence, and the generosity of donors cannot be understated, but there are also strategies involved to help make oneself luckier as well. This blog will also promote recycling and reusing by…See More

"I just want to find a way to tell people who don't know me, or much about the art of making jewelry what I do. If I simply say I make jewelry, they will think I string beads from the hobby store.  "
