Fluxplay Jewellery's Page

A warm welcome to you. I am a studio art-jeweller and metalsmith.

I am based in West Devon in the Tamar Valley where I have a small workshop. I have been working as a jeweller, designer and maker and as a teacher in schools and colleges since I graduated with a BA.hon's in Jewellery design from Central Saint Martins School of Art & Design in 1992.  Over the years I have worked in education as an artist-in-residence, full-time / part-time teacher, course manager, workshop developer and provider.  Currently I am lecturer, Year 1 (level 5) tutor for all HE Crafts courses and course leader of BA hons Jewellery & Silver-smithing at Plymouth College of Art and  was for several years a guest tutor at the Mid Cornwall School of Jewellery.

I have recently completed my Masters in "Design: Maker & Materials" where methodologies for design thinking, creative processes and materials combinations have been my main focus.

Stunning! Your settings highlight the materials perfectly! I hope you sell your work (etsy?) as it begs to be worn and owned. :)

Welcome to crafthaus, the network for artists and fine craftsmen/women ! I am very glad you joined us !

Please add your thoughts to the blogs and discussion forums that are already posted. Of course, if there is something else you'd much rather talk about, please add that to the site so that the rest of us can chime in.

I really hope you will enjoy being with this network, and will find the exchanges interesting and fun. The more you put into it, the more you will get out of it, for sure.

Please note that crafthaus is both a fully edited and a member-financed website, meaning that a small annual fee ($20/yr or $35/2yrs) is involved in being a member here. You will find all the necessary information on how to go about this in the FAQs section of the site. Your membership fee is due on or before May 15, 2010 and is payable through paypal (preferred,) US check or credit card.

All images sent to the website will be reviewed to assure some measure of overall quality control. Crafthaus is not a "free-for-all". Members present their work in front of an educated and critical audience (their peers,) so the images have to be GREAT in both content and photo quality. From the many images received daily, we try to post as many as possible.

Crafthaus does not support any kind of commercial solicitation of our membership. Anyone sending out communication of that kind will be suspended from the site.

Finally, if there are ever any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me via crafthauseditor@live.com anytime. I will do my best to be of help.

Again: Welcome and enjoy !
