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.



Last night I soldered the components that anchor the scatter pins in the nuggets.

Notice the maiming potential.

Ignore the sloppy work table.


Oh and what's this? It just so happens that I'm finished with my Swap Pins! Maybe I'll stop having anxiety dreams (unlikely.) I still have two major pieces I'd like to finish and take with me. And
I'll be shipping everything to the hotel to avoid that whole bomb scare
scenario at the airport.


"Scatter pins" do sound like something that could be frighteningly adept at maiming.



Now to unveil the full Nugget tableau--



A handful of the original crew were swapped around with some lonely orphans on my Etsy site so I apologize for the glitch in continuity. If you fell in love with any of the missing 5 I apologize--this is why I said no dibs! Hopefully there will be enough here to satisfy everyone I bump into. I promise I will not be doing this next year--at least not on this scale!


See you in less than a week!

I'm trying to goad people, but yes--if they wimp out then you get double.

But then that's tricky math. Four for 2Roses...

You know everyone is going to show up with pins. But if they don't, can we have double helping of yours? They look delicious!

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.
