LASER Cutting 101 with Phil Renato Part 2

I made shapes and lots of 'em in 22 min and 2 seconds!


Today was a great day! I spent the morning with Phil learning about Adobe Illustrator and how to prep my designs for the LASER cutter. Since this is a short visit, we decided to focus on small designs that would be great for earrings or simple pendants. First, I learned how to use some of the basic Illustrator tools to create an image from scratch. This was my first experience with Illustrator so it took…

Hallowe'en Post

Last day of October and spooky hallowe'en is here again. I've never much bothered with the festival as I'm not much of a horror fan but this year I've been paying a bit more attention and have been finding it quite funny, especially the non-gendered gingerbread person biscuits which one of the fashion students had iced to look like skeletons:…See More

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!
