I create sculptural jewelry informed by lines and textures etched in the land by nature and also patterns that occur through man's agricultural practices. I am inspired by these vast aerial landscapes and, using gold, silver and stones, redefine them into works designed for the body. Currently my work is represented by Craft Alliance in St. Louis Mo and PS gallery in Columbia MO.

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.
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.
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.
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!
