What is it about cooperative projects that fascinates us so much? Is it the process or is it the outcome? Or is it the knowledge that working cooperatively can be both fun and challenging at the same time? Let's find out about your cooperative projects!See More
I was on crafthaus the site when I noticed an ad for YES on prop 8 (in california). I wrote an email to the founder and realize she may not know who advertises on the site. Prop 8 is offensive and discriminatory-should she allow ads for the nazi party or child porno? I encourage all of you to email Brigite Martin-educating her on this problem. The ad says that prop 8 "supports marriage rights, protect traditional marriage" we all know what it means, any %$@#*! straight couple can get hitched but a couple who have shared their lives for 25 + years through family, illness, happiness and death can't be called a family by our government. Any straight couple can get married after knowing one another for a minute but a true family, those who have spent their lives together can't get the same -federal-rights.
Please email Brigitte and let her know that this ad is on crafthaus-It does not represent my opinions, beliefs, and morals, Let her know what you think. Brigitte Martin, LUKE & ELOY, Gallery Director

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!
