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.

Hello Louise,

Welcome to crafthaus, the network for craft artists and those who support them! I am very glad you joined us! Your crafthaus membership is valid through July 15, 2013.

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 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.

Again: Welcome !

Brigitte Martin
Crafthaus Editor

Tansu Gothic

I am in love with this work by Randi Parkhurst! - Victoria Tansu Gothic is a compelling work that challenges the notions and boundaries of book arts. From the first encounter, a sense of mystery is conveyed by the almost fortress-like architecture…
