Hi Christine, thanks for the reply concerning a recycled metal mixture. I am on your mailing list for your newsletter and look forward to your article. I have not checked Rio yet for their mixture, but presently purchase my silver and gold from Hoover & Strong. I am also looking forward to the upcoming availability of fairtrade gold.
I have been interested in your work for a while now. I'm stupidly organic...sounds like you are too. Have been meaning to sign up for your newsletter. Must do that soon!
Enjoy seeing your designs.

"It is a good article. It's a bit disappointing that the 3 artists they interview are men when it was so obvious that 90% of the Trunk Show exhibitors were women. I'd like to do a blog or two on the influence of women in the arts and how it…"
"Hi Rebecca. I have had probably a 50% success rate entering juried exhibitions, which I think is actually pretty good. I don't do shows where you go and peddle your wares from a booth. The exhibitions I've been in are held in art museums…"
