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.

Artist Interviews-Where are you going? Where have you been? How did you get there?

About this blog--As a recent graduate and currently in a one-year residency the question of what’s next and how to get there is always on my mind. For this blog I will be interviewing artists who have taken varying paths and pursued different careers in or out of the arts to see what they are doing now and the steps they took to get there. Special Note--I want this to be a way to share how we are all trying to figure out the paths to what’s next and where to go, not answers or things to do, but…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 !
