"Way cool! I bet that made your year! I've had the oil paste not work for me. What is your secret? I allowed it to dry for several days, and then fired it per the instructions, and it didn't work. I hate the warpage from firing all at…"
I always cut a decorative hole behind where the stone is going. the piece does tend to dome a bit, but not too much.
I also do bezels by prefiring the base, then attaching the bezel using art clay oil paste and firing a second time. That…"
"Hi Janet. Thanks for the compliment. It's made with fine silver bezel wire which was embedded into the metal clay and fired in place. Then I brushed, polished and patina'd the piece before setting the stone."

Welcome to crafthaus, the network for fine craft artists and those who support them! I am very glad you joined us! Your crafthaus membership is valid through Feb 15, 2012.
Please look around and add your thoughts to the groups, blogs and discussions. Crafthaus is a participatory sport!
Please note that ALL images sent to the website editor are vetted to assure a measure of overall quality control. Unlike other image sharing websites, crafthaus is not a "free-for-all". Our members present their work in front of an educated and critical audience (their peers,) so the photos have to be GREAT. Our goal is to show our members' work in the best possible light. From the many images received daily, we aim to post as many as possible. Crafthaus heartily encourages comments from the membership, however, with regard to photos posted or not, we have a strict "NO WHINING" policy in effect! :-)
If there are ever any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me via email@example.com anytime, I will do my best to be of help.
I hope you will enjoy being with this network, and will find the exchanges interesting and fun.
For the next 13 months we'll discuss the trials, triumphs, and tribulations of exhibiting in art shows as emerging artists and established artists. Exhibition coverage will be balanced with tips on how to strategically build a legacy over a length of time, in a way that makes sense to your individual goals as an artist. Join us each month! There will be surprises around every corner, with photos, videos, SNAG conference coverage, and occasional interviews by rising artists!See More
"John. I am sorry I did not meet you. My fault. I had a massively congested head and was floating around in a bit of a haze from it. I may have some thoughts on your thoughts if I can gather them. glad your writing them…"
"I agree 100% Brigitte. It is more work than most attendees will ever know to put together a conference like this and I, too, raise a toast of HEAR HEAR! to all involved. It was a great conference.
I hope I will be able to help SNAG with whatever…"
"While, I'm offering some responses and feelings about the conference, it in no way diminishes the overall view that I really enjoyed it and thought it very worthwhile. All of the presentations and exhibits were valuable and help create a…"
"Regarding whether or not Toronto was a "good conference", I do respectfully disagree with Harriete. This was my 6th conference (Cleveland, Philly, Houston, Seattle, Phoenix, Toronto) and while I liked them all for different reasons, I…"
"Just to respond to a few sentences in this particular post: John said, "At the SNAG conference almost everyone had a college degree in the arts." Actually I think you might be surprised at the number of people at the Conference and…"
"I'm with you, Emanuela. But let me respond from the perspective of the people I talked with: the talent lies in who and how you use the technology.
I guess time will prove or disprove this. In the meantime, I'm much more content to feel…"
I come from a very different background than most at the conference. I apprenticed with a self taught flutemaker. After 3 years, the only CV I left with was a flute I made that got me hired by a Boston company. I designed my own flute from experience and imagination. To this day my work has always been my only resume.At the SNAG conference almost everyone had a college degree in the arts. Whenever a speaker was introduced, their education highlights were listed along with the schools they were…See More
