Plastic + Metal will be highlighted on Crafthaus from March 13 - April 13. This online exhibition shows different perspectives on how Crafthaus members are applying plastic and metal to craft objects.Curated By: Brice Garrett See More
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
Hi Julie, thanks for the friend request and the photo comment! I've commented back on the brooch answering your questions. I really love the designs you've posted- fashion is a big inspiration in my work and I've just had a good time perusing your website. Thanks again for the add, speak soon-
You're very welcome. I'm glad to hear that you're getting something valuable out of my ranting. These topics are applicable to all artists and small business owners regardless of location and specialty. That's why it is so important to build a team of professionals to help you.
On another note your work is fantastic. FYI I studied fashion before focusing on jewelry. Couture is a HUGE inspiration. Perhaps we can collaborate on something one day :)
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!

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
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.
