"HEIRLOOMS: Navigating the Personal in Contemporary Jewelry" link to article including several Crafthaus artists

Posted on February 13, 2009 at 8:55am 3 Comments

Howdy, all:

Since this is a site for sharing and this article I worked on mentions several of the great artists that are featured on Crafthaus, I thought I would forward a link. I hope that you like it!
