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!

I've just got back from almost a week in the Lone Star State which I was visiting on the invitation of my friends and colleagues, James Thurman and Umut Demirguc Thurman. What a trip! Based in Denton, Dallas, the main reason for my visit was to speak to the students at the University of North Texas and to work with them on a couple of practical workshops. Before…See More
