"Wurmiz" brooch, composite and epoxy resin, polymer clay, steel, copper


I wish I'd had a second pair of hands for this shot, but time is short today and I really wanted to share the two new pieces I've managed to drag over the finish line before the conference.


For those of us in the nebulous post-degree world there are no more critiques to hold us hostage in the studio. And I have to say that I sometimes miss that panicky, sleep-deprived, hyperactive state. So every year I try and finish new work to bring with me to wear at the conference and torture myself needlessly before the trip.



This beast perches on my shoulder very comfortably. Should be a good way to make friends when I venture out of the conference nest and into the hinterlands of downtown Houston.




"Lasche" brooch, composite and epoxy resin, paint, 7" x 3.5" x 2.5"


This one worked out well, which came as a surprise. I thought it was going to be a real clunker until last night. At some point I got myself lost, but found my way back out.


Now all that's left to do is pack everything up, express ship my work, and pace frantically until tomorrow.


I'll see all of you in Houston tomorrow afternoon!

You should build a camera in it. Bet you would get some great shots :)

Both brooches look great! Safe journey!

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!
