"I have been in awe of your aesthetic and mind-bogglling marriage of metals, inlay and piercing skills since my teacher, Sarah Chapman, showed me your work in our Lillstreet metals class. I am more thrilled with each new series! Brava!"

Thanks for adding me as your friend. I loved my visit to your beautiful country, we drove the length of it and met many wonderful, friendly people. Your beautiful work reflects its color and passion! Louise"
My earth sign love of the organic and tactile is combined with my awe of technology and structure. I envision an exploration of contrasts in my jewelry creations. Richly textured surfaces combined with organic structural qualities, precious metals with found objects, gems with non-precious metals and plastics, tribal design with new architectural forms, but always created with an eye to the sensual and highly dependent on the magic and power of serendipity.

Please note that ALL images sent to the website 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 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 your images don't get posted they do not meet crafthaus quality standards. Please review the photo guidelines under the FAQ tab.
If there are ever any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me via crafthauseditor at live dot com, 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.
“While striving to incorporate fashion and function in my body of work, Joe’s was created. Reflecting on the glamor once held by tobacco use, I pulled imagery from vintage cigarette advertisements. Once used to seduce the consumer, I take this now taboo subject matter and place it over the belt as a means of advertising and seduction of both the product and body. This reminds my audience of the cultural change that has evolved into the disapproval of tobacco usage and advertising.”

I witnessed a bunch of troublesome ‘discussions’ this past week. Not on crafthaus and not directed at me personally, but troublesome nevertheless. They also weren’t real discussions either, as in: a respectful exchange of opinions where one side hears the other out. It…
