A show at Crafthaus has more of an audience then a gallery and offers a permanent stage to the world. We do love gallery shows, but at Crafthaus submission is easy, doesn't cost anything for members. In addition to our calls there are others you may be interested in.
We try to make the submission process as painless as possible! If you have any questions please let us know. Marie
No, I am not at that boutique...but I totally fell in love with it after I viewed their website!!! I absolutley love those colors. My house and my jewelry display are blue and chocolate!!! How funny!!! It should really be my shop!!!!!!!!! Anyway...the workshops are great!!!!! Hope to meet you soon!!!
No, no, no...they meet at Maryville University. It's at highway 40 and 141...I'm sure you could google it!!! below is the Society for Midwest Metalsmiths (SMM) webpage and it will tell you all you need to know!!!
There are some AWESOME workshops coming up!!!
I have been waiting a LONG time for a detailed, high profile (and talented) enameler to visit us for a workshop...maybe with another "enamel' voice in the crowd...it will happen soon!
Check out the site and feel free to ask if you have any questions. I LOVE this group!! Everyone is very down to earth, and they are in the group for the art of the craft...no big heads...if you know what I mean!!!
Hope to see you soon! :-)
I saw your enameled rings a few weeks ago...and thought they were soooooooo pretty (I enamel too). But today I was searching (googeling) someones name and ran across your name because you live in St. Louis (me too). I didn't put the name with the rings until I saw your crafthaus page. Have you attended any of the SMM meetings??? I can't recall if I have seen you there. If not...you should really stop by!!! They are a very nice (and talented ) bunch of people!!! Love your work!
Welcome to crafthaus ! I am very glad you joined us.
Please add a few images of your work and your thoughts and comments to the blog/discussion topics that are already posted. Of course, if there is something else you'd much rather talk about, please add that to the site so that the rest of us can chime in.
I really hope you will enjoy being with this network and find the exchanges interesting and fun. The more you put into it, the more you will get out of it, for sure.
If there are ever any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me anytime. I will do my best to be of help.
Again: Welcome !

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!

There are no limits on quantity. Please know that if there is limited space but juror's want your work in the exhibition, we (they) may only ask for certain work from the series. I hope that makes sense."
I've been in the workshop a lot over the last week - not all of which has been to bury my head in the sand away from the increasingly nasty pro- and anti-independence campaigns in Scotland (which is also why I've not been so active on social media recently). Mostly, I've been working on commissions - a set of buttons, a couple of rings - and the collar…See More
