Saw your collaborative piece that you made with Loring last night at the cooperative tableware show.  Very cool work!  I love it when two artists that I dig get together like that!  Congrats

Hi Francesca,

I'm curating an online exhibition called "Piece Progressions" and would love for you to be a part of it. I think your varied materials and lovely final pieces would add something really unique. You can see details of the exhibition here: http://crafthaus.ning.com/group/crafthausexhibition/forum/topics/call-for-entries-piece?xg_source=msg_mes_network

If you have any questions feel free to contact me; it would be great to have you as part of the exhibition!

hi francesca!

yes, i enjoyed meeting you, as well.  i'm such a great fan of your work.

my friend, brighid, came to your booth (she's the one who was living in milan and is now headed for sao paulo) and bought a pair of your cufflinks (little blue ones with spiderman on them...such fun!)  she told me you have your dad looking for interesting paper for you.

i hope we do another show together soon!

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!

Arriving at this message is the goal of this traveling exhibition opening at the SNAG conference in Boston 2015, Velvet da Vinci, San Francisco, CA - Aug 19 - Sept 20, 2015, Equinox Gallery, San Antonio, TX - Oct 16 - Nov 15, 2015, Baltimore Jewelry Center, Baltimore, MD - Dec 11, 2015 - Jan 08, 2016, Brooklyn Metal Works, Brooklyn, NY - Feb 5 - Mar 4, 2016.

London and the South/Dundee and the North

Since my last post, I've been on the south coast of England, variously in London, Folkestone and Brighton. What should have been a very relaxing weekend proved to be anything but, albeit in a good way. Very good, in fact, as it kicked off with seeing Kate Bush perform her "Before The Dawn" concert at the Hammersmith Apollo.…See More
