Behind the Brooch part 2

I am happy to share with all of you more images of wonderful brooches from artists around the word. I had so many submissions on my first call that I had to create a second part exhibition. This exhibition focuses on a side of the brooch we usually do not pay much attention to: the back side. Our first look is naturally always trained at the front, but when we do take the time to look at the back of a brooch, it will oftentimes reveal a surprising aspect for us, a delightful little secret.

First Hand

“First Hand,” will function as an ongoing collection of tips, musings, and information gained primarily from ‘first hand’ experience.  It will cover topics like: How I built a website from scratch, pricing and packaging, why Lady Gaga would wear your work, and a plethora of other exciting stuff  in between.   In addition to my own contributions, I will solicit the knowledge of others in the field in an effort to shed light on topics I have identified as vague but valuable in my own experience…See More

Thanks for the invite Marilyn. I really like your work, colors, forms. I'm just starting to work more with polymer clays so your work is very interesting for me. Thanks again...

Thank you for your kind words about the waterworld cuffs. Much appreciated.  You have good taste, what can I say ;-)). But seriously, I really like making these cuffs, they're all about color. I made lots of them so far, probably 50 or so, all slightly different, but these were the first in that waterworld series. I have another image line going which is called 'Victorian graffiti' and combines b/w Victorian imagery with colorful japanese style flowers and some black graffiti type markings -- to make it a bit less 'cute'. It kind of sounds unappealing when writing about it, but they are actually beautiful cuffs too, if I may say so myself. The newest line I have just started this past week was b/w imagery on a silver background. Looks promising so far. I'll post some images when I am done :-))

Again, thanks for taking the time to comment. Have a nice weekend !

Scrounge

Scrounging for materials and tools is a central part of my studio practice, and there are great bargains to be found!  In the past year, I’ve purchased a nice amount of silver for about $2/ounce, received several pounds of enamels, and refurbished hundreds of rusty chasing tools.  Luck has a lot of influence, and the generosity of donors cannot be understated, but there are also strategies involved to help make oneself luckier as well. This blog will also promote recycling and reusing by…See More
