I am a jewellery designer and I use sterling silver mostly. I work for myself and am currently learning enamelling on copper which I love. A lot of my designs are inspired by animals...which I also love. I worked in animation for a couple of years before this. My dog, Toni, a lurcher cross, comes into work with me everyday and sleeps, yawns, stretches, turns around a few times, scratches up her bed a bit in an effort to make it more comfy (fails at this), and then goes back to sleep.

Hi Geraldine, I don't have any workshops planned this year. I'll be teaching a class at California College of the Art in Oakland for the spring semester. I have a list of places wanting to schedule something but I've been needing a break so I haven't set anything up. But maybe sometime in the summer.
Welcome to crafthaus, the network for craft artists, and those who support them! I am very glad you joined us !
Please feel free to look around, meet friends, and start adding your thoughts to the groups, blogs and discussion forums that are 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. Crafthaus is a participatory sport ! 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 December 15, 2010 and is payable through paypal (preferred,) US check or credit card.
ALL images sent to the website editor will be vetted to assure some measure of overall quality control. Unlike other image sharing websites, 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. Our goal is to show our members' work in the best possible light, and from the many images received daily, we try to post as many as possible. Crafthaus heartily encourages comments from the membership, however with regard to photos posted or not, we have a strict "NO WHINING" policy in effect ! If your photos do not get posted they are just not as good as they need to be. Yes, it's really that simple. Just reshoot and resubmit ! No harm done.
Finally, if there are ever any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me via firstname.lastname@example.org anytime. I will do my best to be of help. I really hope you will enjoy being with this network, and will find the exchanges interesting and fun.
For the next 13 months we'll discuss the trials, triumphs, and tribulations of exhibiting in art shows as emerging artists and established artists. Exhibition coverage will be balanced with tips on how to strategically build a legacy over a length of time, in a way that makes sense to your individual goals as an artist. Join us each month! There will be surprises around every corner, with photos, videos, SNAG conference coverage, and occasional interviews by rising artists!See More
"John. I am sorry I did not meet you. My fault. I had a massively congested head and was floating around in a bit of a haze from it. I may have some thoughts on your thoughts if I can gather them. glad your writing them…"
"I agree 100% Brigitte. It is more work than most attendees will ever know to put together a conference like this and I, too, raise a toast of HEAR HEAR! to all involved. It was a great conference.
I hope I will be able to help SNAG with whatever…"
"While, I'm offering some responses and feelings about the conference, it in no way diminishes the overall view that I really enjoyed it and thought it very worthwhile. All of the presentations and exhibits were valuable and help create a…"
"Regarding whether or not Toronto was a "good conference", I do respectfully disagree with Harriete. This was my 6th conference (Cleveland, Philly, Houston, Seattle, Phoenix, Toronto) and while I liked them all for different reasons, I…"
"Just to respond to a few sentences in this particular post: John said, "At the SNAG conference almost everyone had a college degree in the arts." Actually I think you might be surprised at the number of people at the Conference and…"
