Inspiration of Eye, Ear & Fist



Eye, Ear & Fist is also a political piece but more whimsical with introduction of vibrant colors. This piece is a set of three enameled pins. This project’s theme was “Boundary” and I was inspired by the Japanese parable, "See no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil."…

Behind the brooch

I have always thought that the back of any jewelry piece is as important as the front. I always try to have something on the back of my pieces as a surprise for the wearer and also because I think it says a lot about the maker.

Most of the work I do has a detail on the back, I enjoy very much doing it.…

How to Pay for SNAG?

As soon as one SNAG ends I start planning for the nest one. Well scheming is really what it should be called. The last few years I haven't been as concerned about the trip because my money situation wasn't as, well...depressing. However, as anyone who has attended SNAG knows, once you go you are hooked! The dealer's room invites you in and entices you to empty your wallet. The presentations and demos can spark a new facet of work that you didn't think you would be interested in exploring.… Continue

Greetings Fellow Crafthaus Members!



I hope you're all hunkering down and finishing your Swap Pins--right now we've only got 24 members in the Flickr group. Am I to assume that I'll be doubling up on swaps because so few of you are participating? Hmmm....no pressure or anything.…

Greetings Fellow Crafthaus Members!



I've added all the little painted details that make these better. Half are stewing in their own juices nearly completed, the other half are waiting for more paint. I can only do so many hours of tiny stippling and stripes before I lose my marbles. Being freakishly nearsighted may have something to do with my surface tendencies. I hope you're all out there rushing to finish the way I…

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, Thomas Mann's Gallery I/O April 1 - June 25, 2016.

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

OFF TO THE RACES:

Rachel and Brigitte got started on their own cooperation. Follow along and comment.

Texas!

I've just got back from almost a week in the Lone Star State which I was visiting on the invitation of my friends and colleagues, James Thurman and Umut Demirguc Thurman. What a trip! Based in Denton, Dallas, the main reason for my visit was to speak to the students at the University of North Texas and to work with them on a couple of practical workshops. Before…See More
