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!

Wonderful to hear from such a vibrant presence in the craft community! I can't wait to have a closer look at your previous exhibitions. They sound amazing. My clumsy fingers muddled the original friend request, so I sent it back to you. I hope you accept.

Hallowe'en Post

Last day of October and spooky hallowe'en is here again. I've never much bothered with the festival as I'm not much of a horror fan but this year I've been paying a bit more attention and have been finding it quite funny, especially the non-gendered gingerbread person biscuits which one of the fashion students had iced to look like skeletons:…See More

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!
