hey roger,

i'm in touch with peg now 'cos i'm coming thru next tues/weds.  looking at our thread, it sounds like after work is best for you, but we could arrive a little before your day ends so we could see you "in action."  does peg know where you work?  does next tuesday seem like a good day to you?  would you mind sharing your email so i don't have some communicating thru email and some thru crafthaus?  thanks so much!  looking forward to meeting!  anne

ok, so the message i sent yesterday, totally screwy. i am not heading to new orleans from you. i'm heading to greenvile, some 650 miles away. about the same but i cannot set-up till early fri morning. there was logic behind my original choice of wednesday departure. SO, the upshot is i will pass thru on the 9th, as i originally said. whew, what a dodo bird.

hey roger,

sorry time for email is becoming scarce with only a little over 2 weeks to go b4 i hit the road.  no problem about the evening.  i realized that i have to be in new orleans by thursday early because my set-up is 11 on thurs the 10th.  so i think i'll be heading thru on the 8th, leaving me all day on the 9th to travel down there.  it's 675 miles from stL to NO, and i can do that in a day.  could visit you during the day too, if that's not a distraction.  do you have a cell phone number i could plug into my cell.  i don't always have an internet connection and i don't have any kind of smart phone.  just a regular old one that i can call from or text.  looking forward to meeting up in stL.

hi roger,

i'm discovering there are so many great metalsmiths in the StL area.  there are more people in your area than  my whole state!  i will be passing thru StL right after the first weekend in may.  i'll be coming from the brookside show in KC.  so that would be may 7 and/or 9.  i'm heading to hannibal to a friends but i wanted to stop and see peg and now you!  i'll also be leaving hannibal on the 9th so i could pop in that day also, should one or both days suit you guys better.  let me know your thoughts.  i have to get to peg with the dates also.

At 8:06pm on March 20, 2012, anne havel said…

well, i 'd love to meet you.  i'm passing thru st louis in may and i'm hoping to connect with peg fetter.  do you guys know each other?

At 12:10pm on March 20, 2012, anne havel said…

Thanks for a great workshop Roger!

 

 
 
 

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!

Arriving at this message is the goal of this traveling exhibition opening at the SNAG conference in Boston 2015, Velvet da Vinci, San Francisco, CA - Aug 19 - Sept 20, 2015, Equinox Gallery, San Antonio, TX - Oct 16 - Nov 15, 2015, Baltimore Jewelry Center, Baltimore, MD - Dec 11, 2015 - Jan 08, 2016, Brooklyn Metal Works, Brooklyn, NY - Feb 5 - Mar 4, 2016.

DETAILS on exhibition premise, call for artists, submission guidelines.....

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.
