Behind the Brooch

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. With this exhibition, I would like to let you in on that secret, something that typically only the maker and the wearer know about. I hope you will enjoy with me this selection of brooches by…See More

OOOOHHHHHHH!  That sounds absolutely wonderful!!!  My first love was metal smithing.  I took a beginners class over 20 years ago and LOVED it but I did not have the time or the means to pursue it which is why I jumped whole heartedly into metal clay after discovering it!  You are now, where I hope to be in the future!  I'm starting back with some metalsmithing classes this summer but no where near a fab as the class you took. Yeah! for you :D

Hi Jennifer!  I'm doing great!  I had a great rings class with Lorrene Davis at Ann Davis' beautiful studio this past weekend and am still riding the high.  As for Crafthaus, I've finally made myself get this all together and am soooooo glad I did.  I'm looking forward to getting to know some fabulously talented artists like yourself a little better.  What a great idea this is!  How is everything with you?

Congrats on the feature!
 
 
 

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.

DETAILS on exhibition premise, call for artists, submission guidelines.....

Ife Head and Collar

I've been in the workshop a lot over the last week - not all of which has been to bury my head in the sand away from the increasingly nasty pro- and anti-independence campaigns in Scotland (which is also why I've not been so active on social media recently). Mostly, I've been working on commissions - a set of buttons, a couple of rings - and the collar…See More
