I had already discounted some satiny cord, the usual pearl-silk that you can get at most jewellery suppliers as well as the nylon…

Behind the Brooch: A closer look at backs, catches and pin stems (Book)

I started a wonderful project last year about collecting images of brooches from the side we rarely see, the back side. It was such a wonderful experience to see how different artists approached the back look and mechanism of their brooches.

I started looking around for more pictures, and although it was not an easy task I managed to create a wonderful board on Pinterest named, of course, …

We are living in a time of immense and painful transformation in the arts. All across the country, many of our biggest arts institutions are facing extinction. Meanwhile, artists have been totally marginalized. And at the same time, audiences are diminishing. Only the digital art forms are doing somewhat well...because almost all of our leisure time in America is… Continue
