Hi Christine,
A belated congratulations on your solo show! I hope you can post some pics soon. After a long summer away and a busy fall with unexpected setbacks, I'm finally getting my act together to ask you some guild questions.

Hi Christine,

I just got back myself from teaching at an art camp all summer. I'm hitting the ground running because the New Jersey Metal Arts Guild is getting ready for our first juried member show in November. Maybe I can email you offsite with specific questions. I'm always looking for pearls of wisdom.

Hi Christine! Your work is fantastic! You put so much time and detail into each piece, that's really incredible.

You can email me at anne.m.fiala@gmail.com.

Best,

Anne

thanks christine,
my website isn't really up and running yet, i've just got the most basic info there now and no images really. i plan to really get it up after next week. i'm doing a 1 day craft show (art on the mall at univ of toledo) tomorrow so right now i'm focused on getting through that. july has been insane with ann arbor and the the UT show 1 week later. i've got to do some stuff on my etsy site too but that will also have to wait. what you been up to? check out my webiste later, should be alot better. i checked out yours BTW, quite awhile ago actually, and i did want to compliment you on it. oh--and big congrats on getting into the online brooch show, i thought that was really well done.

hi christine,
guess you're a nght owl too, saw your comment come in around midinight. ann arbor was exhausting (no kidding!) but lots better this year due to our improved booth location. i think everybody did better. Ericka told me that you thought the show at domaci looked really strong. sorry you had to miss the fair.

Hi Christine,

I'd definitely like to keep in touch about guild experience. I'm teaching at a camp in the catskills for the entire summer, but happily, our first juried member show is in the works. So it our organization getting it's legs. I'll be in touch, thanks for getting in touch.
 
 
 

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!

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.
