Montreal
I am a .... Example: Student, Maker, Educator, etc.
There is a symbiotic relationship between fine art and all forms of design - a conceptual fluidity where influences may move freely between disciplines promoting exchange and evolution.

I am inspired by the form, colors and textures of objects both artistic and common: architecture, furniture, paintings, ceramics, fashion...

My work is based on geometric shapes - their inherent strength, applicability, and timelessness command my respect.

Balance rather than symmetry.


By 1975 I had completed my fundamental studies in jewelry design and began experimenting with various metals and techniques. I knew that jewelry making was my direction, my métier. Two years later Janis Kerman Design was established. The focus of my work for the next ten years was the design and production of limited edition collections, detailing for fashion accessories and unique pieces. Though I enjoyed the production years and the fact that my designs were available to many, my need to focus on unique pieces was determining the next era of work. Since 1986, I have been working exclusively in precious metals, gems and experimental materials.

Sitting Pretty Part 2 is how the show will look http://crafthaus.ning.com/group/sittingprettytheartsittingpretty
A show at Crafthaus has more of an audience then a gallery and offers a permanent stage to the world. We do love gallery shows, but at Crafthaus submission is easy, doesn't cost anything for members. In addition to our calls there are others you may be interested in.
We try to make the submission process as painless as possible! If you have any questions please let us know. Glen & Marie

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!

Starting Points

My love affair with fine metals started several years ago when I was able to take a Young Artists Workshop at Moore College of Art and Design.  After my first jewelry class and I was pretty much hooked.  I continued chasing the dream and received my BFA in Studio Art, concentrating in Metals from Rowan University, while studying under Jill Baker Gower. I am grateful that I was able to find my focus, enameling, and really develop a body of work within the few years following my gradation.…See More

Behind the Brooch part 2

I am happy to share with all of you more images of wonderful brooches from artists around the word. I had so many submissions on my first call that I had to create a second part exhibition. This exhibition focuses on a side of the brooch we usually do not pay much attention to: the back side. Our first look is naturally always trained at the front, but when we do take the time to look at the back of a brooch, it will oftentimes reveal a surprising aspect for us, a delightful little secret.
