Hi Catherine, You have some remarkable pieces of jewellery, which medium are you working in silver or mixed metals.
I am just getting back into my work having had nearly three years of very little due to circumstances, but I feeling a lot more settled here with my son in Queensland. I have quite a lot of ideas running through my head which I now want make into reality.
Thanks, Catherine! I'm delighted to be here, and also really glad that you actually received my invitation, since for some reason the last several times I tried to invite anyone to connect here, the page just hung. :( Anyway, good to connect with you here! :)
Wow, time passes so quickly. Sorry we haven't spoken. We have been doing our college visits. Driving out to Ohio for a few weekends and to the other colleges Cameron had gotten accepted to. We finally signed the check this week for Xavier University in Cincinnati. It's very emotional for me. Plus.....I finally got back into doing some PMC. How are you doing? I absolutely love your box. I would love to see more views. It's georgous! xo
i had my web site up with zen cart and took it down. just too complicated. learning curve very large. i have had so many artists tell me to use etsy and when i go to their etsy store they have 7 sales in 3 years. can't devote my time to something like that. i only have 2 friends out of probably 50 that are doing well on etsy. how about yourself ? do you use it and is it going well for you? does seem to be price related. i am a one person road show and just cannot do it all. i like doing shows, meeting people, and getting out there. right now i make enough to live so i'm ok with it. i feel like this is my year and i'm going to do great!! i have selected another platform for my web site, but that will have to wait for another day. right now, people just have to ask and i send pics of what i currently have. anyway, it's what i can do at this time, or at least what i can fit in, time wise.
thanks for the compliments. don't know where you put prices, like harriete commented. i sell at craft shows, if that's what you were saying. i can be a little dense. i actually head out tuesday for a few shows. road trip!
Thank you for liking my work! Fellow makers that appreciate the energy and effort that goes into creating pieces through traditional techniques are precious! Sometimes I feel like a very lonely voice crying in the vastness of innovative art jewelry but then ideas that turn ancient designs into something aesthetically pleasing today hit and I cannot resist trying them out. Thank you again!

From potters to politicians, everyone today wants to be called a maker. What can designers really expect from this ideologically hazy movement?

This last couple of months has been absolutely unbearable for someone who enjoys sharing the progress of works online. First came the Caledonian Sleeper cufflink commission, then came my work with "The Contemporary Jewellery Exchange" for Jan Donaldson, which I can't show until the 1st of May! The good thing is that I can now reveal the…See More
