Tom McDowell believes that the adult world is a far too sombre and sensible place.

Children have a very fresh and fun outlook on life and this is something that we as adults can learn from.

Using anodised aluminium, silver and a variety of different media he transforms children's drawings of animals into quirky wearable pieces. Each creature seemingly takes on a personality of its own, creating a fun environment for both the wearer and those who they encounter.

He believes that the act of wearing jewellery is too often a formal activity and that it is important for us to sometimes let go of the seriousness of being a grown-up and hopes that by doing so we can make the world more smiley and enjoyable.

Hi Tom, are you going to graduation? I know it been a while since you finished and you've had lots of winnings and exhibitions and all sorts, but would be great to see you there!

Welcome to crafthaus, the network for fine craft artists and those who support them! I am very glad you joined us! Your crafthaus membership is valid through Jan 15, 2012.

Please look around and add your thoughts to the groups, blogs and discussions. Crafthaus is a participatory sport!

ALL images sent to the website editor are vetted to assure a measure of overall quality control. Unlike other image sharing websites, crafthaus is not a "free-for-all". Our members present their work in front of an educated and critical audience (their peers,) so the photos have to be GREAT. Our goal is to show our members' work in the best possible light. From the many images received daily, we aim to post as many as possible. Crafthaus heartily encourages comments from the membership, however, with regard to photos posted or not, we have a strict "NO WHINING" policy in effect! :-)

If there are ever any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me via crafthauseditor@live.com anytime, I will do my best to be of help.

I hope you will enjoy being with this network, and will find the exchanges interesting and fun.

Again: Welcome !

Brigitte Martin
Crafthaus Editor
