Hmm, art history and ceramics ? AWESOME !! Actually: ENVIABLE is more like it. Back when I was young (that was when the dinosaurs still roamed the earth), I wanted to study art history too...Oh well. It's still one of my favorite topics.

And did you know there is a ceramics group here on crafthaus you could join and possibly team up with ?
In and out of clay. If I were you, I would ask Margaret and Elizabeth if they could use another blogger/contributor and start commenting on their blogs. We do have a fair number of ceramicists on the site, but they seem to be hiding behind the jewelry people.

Lots to do here to make your mark. :-))

I absolutely hear what you are saying.

It is certainly true that a lot of people here have an academic background and work in different techniques than wire wrapping. It is also true that there are not only jewelry academics here. So my best suggestion would be for you to "forget the "differences" for a moment, like what it is you are doing and what techniques others are employing, and instead start thinking about what you may have IN COMMON. Crafthaus is a wide network and you will definitively find people here who are interested in topics you are interested in too.

So how about starting a discussion thread/blog about a topic you are knowledgeable about, such as gemstones, tools, and - yes - wire wrapping itself ? How about being proactive in your special field and shoot a little video about you in your studio, or do an instructional essay with lots of photos, a play-by-play of a certain wire-wrarpping technique you excel at ? I would LOVE that!! You could become the wire wrapping advocate here :-) I am serious!!

If you start a blog or discussion, I can also feature you in one of my weekly email blasts and that's a real good way to spread the word.

As you noted, I could not agree more: It's not so much about getting accepted by others, it's what it is you do with the tools you have and the information you are able to dispense.

If you are interested to do start blogging about gemstones/wire wrapping or any other topic of your interest, please shoot me a direct mail to crafthauseditor [at ] live.com and we will figure something out together :-))

Best,
B.

I'm listening :-) but this is different from facebook. If you want responses to certain topics it might be better to start a blog or discussion thread :-) Go right ahead.

Hi Dawn,

Thank you for adding me here, and thank you for all of the wonderful compliments about my jewelry--I really appreciate it! --I am in love with YOUR gorgeous work...

Oooooo, you're a professional cellist! I'm a *former* classical pianist... I sold my piano to make way for my jewelry bench--I was having too many issues with regards to making a decision and it had to be one or the other. I miss her. ;-( But, I mention that because I always wished that my parents had started me out on the cello instead of the piano! ;-D

I look forward to seeing you around!
