I think I need an Exorcist...

As a formerly trained artist/craftsman I sort of sold my soul to seek a living in the commercial realm of jewelry manufacturing- It is an awesome industry filled with talent, genius and a large number of dirt bags to say the least.



I feel blessed as I have always been allowed to express my opinions on purity in design, conceptual constructivism and "real" high craft craftsmanship.



Just the other day I engaged in a pretty benign conversation on another board focused on the… Continue

Where do I go from here.....

So When I was in college in the 80's I started this piece. It was my commentary on politics and nuclear proliferation. We where at odds with the soviets and there where enough missiles on the planet to destroy our orb of life a hundred times over-



Inspired by what I think was one of the best educators in the craft world at Buffalo State College- I sought to create a piece that was not only massive but had a sort of political tongue in cheek message. (Thanks Steve) I created an 8… Continue

Hi Paul,
You might find the company I work for very interesting. 3D stl direct into metal. Check out: . The standard print media is not the ideal material for skinware, but they are experimenting with a Palladium /Silver brew. Anyway, the company is in the "hood" and they are doing some amazing things for people with computer modeling skills. is the decorative arts unit.

Behind the Brooch

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. With this exhibition, I would like to let you in on that secret, something that typically only the maker and the wearer know about. I hope you will enjoy with me this selection of brooches by…See More
