"Why is this commission worse than when artists sell work through brick and mortar galleries that often take 50% commission? Don't those galleries also use artists' images for promotion, etc.? I'm just curious."

The "hat pins" (?) are fabulous, absolutely fabulous. The toothbrushes instantly stuck me as hilarious and I don't even know why. Your silver spoon shows your exquisite talent and craftsmanship the former shows your sense of humor and I am delighted by both.
The etsy/shopping cart feature is something Brigitte added several months ago. If I recall there is a small link on your member page that lets you add a cart or link up to your etsy site.
If it doesn't jump out at you, drop Brigitte a note. She'll hook you right up.

glad you like my work! I do belong to MWM, but sadly I never go to the meetings. There are a lot of really good metalsmiths here, and many of them teach at Craft Alliance, that would be a great place to start. I would also be happy to introduce you to some metalsmiths that I am close to. My email is: email@example.com, phone: 314-960-4610
Hello, I am enjoying Bowling Green! But I am still struggling to be productive for my work and strong, cold, mean wind.... It is getting better, though.

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!
