My museum première

Yes!

One of my creations found his way to a museum for the first time, for you this probably means very little, but for myself it's a major event.

The Hologram3/3 ring of my Holograms collection is on show in "The Design Circus, Los productos mas Fascinantes del Mundo" at the Circulo de bellas artes in Madrid. The catalogue arrived at my home today and it looks great.

If you happen to be in, or travelling to Madrid in the next weeks, this is one place you can go.…

I am having the hardest time with this word...goldsmith!

I recently read ...(twice actually, in different publication) that you can be a goldsmith even if you don't use gold. (Art Jewelry magazine, January 2010 issue, page 20) What?????????????????????

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!
