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

Posted on February 13, 2009 at 7:55am 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!

Hello Lena:

I just went through the latest Metalsmith and read your wonderful article "Ornamentalism Revisited". What a great piece. Of course, I love that 2 crafthausers are inlcuded as well... Emiko and Lauren - Oh, and your co-author is on crafthaus too :-)

Well, again: Congratulations to you ! Really Wonderful !

Thanks so much Lena! I loved the article! My work totally focuses on some of those very things. And, some of the artists you mention are artists I absolutley look up to. Thank you for the link! Nice to meet you on Crafthaus. Do you have any heirloom shows coming up sometime soon?

Dear Lena, just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your piece on Heirlooms. I just joined crafthaus and saw the link for it. There were several jewelers mentioned whose work i love, and you introduced me to a few new ones as well. I had no idea so many artists were using lace as a conceptual starting point, which is part of my concept as well. Guess I'm working in a bit of a bubble!
Has your other article, Mining History, been published yet? I look forward to reading it.
Best, Tricia

Thank you, I am thinking about going back to this idea to study it more-maybe wedding veils.
