Profile Information

Where do you live ? City, State and Country
Austin, TX
Place of Work ? Example: Studio, College, Gallery, Museum, ...)
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?

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

Jaime,
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.

Rabbits, Glass Sheep, Ada Lovelace and Virginia Woolf in Hindi

The main event this week has been completing my watch and chain for the ACJ exhibition "Sleight of Hand". The last element to be completed was the fitting of a glass to the 1838 silver watch-case which was the catalyst for the whole piece and I found an incredible place in Kent where, for a very modest fee, a traditional thick, bevelled mineral-glass was cut to fit, polished and fitted. (Anyone else requiring this service should contact "Crystalfit":…See More
