Profile Information

Where do you live ? City, State and Country

studio
I am a .... Example: Student, Maker, Educator, etc.
I make jewelry and sculptural boxes with sterling silver, mineral stones and an array of found, vintage or repurposed materials. These everyday materials can be a piece of broken windshield glass, a fragment of plastic from a doll shoe, a found pebble or shell, or even a tiny stuffed pillow sewn from the plastic of a thrifted rain poncho. By using non-traditional and often overlooked materials as the "stones" in my metal work I encourage the viewer to observe these common, sometimes discarded materials, in a new light. Through a variety of techniques and concepts I create small objects and adornment that breathe new life into the mundane thus challenging the viewer to reconsider their definition of beauty.

no, I've never entered an outdoor show - the weather seems to be such an issue (especially here!), but I will look for your booth.

Hey - so good to see you here! Hope things are going well for you, Jamie Jo - the work is as wonderfully interesting and fun as ever. It's great to see the continuity in the evolution of the pieces. The stitched sections are a really nice addition to the mix.

Will you be doing any shows here? How about the Clayton show in
the fall?

It's good to see you here, I was just coincidentally looking at the work on your site yesterday! Love the new pieces up on the site here. I skipped Ann Arbor this year, were you there?

Thanks Jaime,

I'll be a the SNAG Houston conference in March. I'll probably have a few of the beaded pieces with me, so hopefully we'll be able to connect and you'll get to see them in person.

Hi Jaime Jo,
I am enjoying being in Virginia - we are in Sandy Hook - real close to Richmond. I loved looking at your work and look forward to seeing more! In a couple of weeks I am going to Illinois to teach a workshop at SIUE for the Society for Midwest Metalsmiths and plan to hang out with Charity for a day.
Take Care,
xoxo Marlene

I'm really liking your new stuff-just checked out your photos. couldn't get a 3 day pass this year to ACL so no Sept trip to Austin for us this year, considering SXSW though.

RULE THE WORLD

Friends of Carlotta Gallery, Zuerich, Switzerland

What are the adornments of dictators, despots, and the plain delusional? What do they need in order to let their real personalities shine through? What tools do tyrants have to show that they are in charge? See for yourself!

Retracing my steps: Explorations in Fiber Sculpture at Arrowmont

Arrowmont: after 25 years, I am returning to the place where it all started for me as a fiber artist.  That embarrassing picture is me, Amber O’Harrow (then Amber Wood), with my first weaving, turned into a bag.  Let’s see where my journey has led me since then, as I follow my guide, Pat Hickman on an exploration of fiber sculpture at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts. See More
