Thanks for the add Nicola. I love your work! I actually went to DOJ too as an exchange student from San Diego State! I am coming back to Scotland this summer and would love to know if your showing anywhere.
Hi Nicola, thanks for adding me! You've got some really lovely pieces here, and I'm looking forward to seeing more. Congrats on the boutique in Edinburgh- next time I'm up there I'll have to find out which one so I can go have a look :)
We try to make the process as painless as possible. A show at Crafthaus has more of an audience then a gallery and offers a permanent stage. We do love gallery shows, but here at Crafthaus submission is easy, doesn't cost anything for members.
Hope you enjoy Crafthaus, lots of great artists to connect with...good discussions.

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. With…See More

A modern metalsmith/metal artist can be found working in traditional metals as well as in nontraditional materials. The designs can range from the classic to the extravagant, and the techniques can either be centuries old or decidedly current.
The wide range of expression preferences, design options, materials, and processes has lead within our field to unfavorable misconceptions, misunderstandings and in some cases even outright disdain between artists. Can the metal and jewelry field overcome its division and send out a much-needed signal?
We appreciate and respect our historical past and acknowledge that current materials have a rightful place in jewelry/object making!
