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 :)
