Thank you so much for your comments! I actually saw one of your pieces in the Schmuck cataloge and I really enjoyed it. And then I too saw your spine piece, wonderful! Also, your Everlong necklace is fantastic! I really enjoy how a whole set of jewelry is on one chain. I actually love Lauren Kalman's work. My first metalsmithing class at New Paltz had a photo of the Hard Ware piece, the gilded tongue, in the room and I fell in love.
My Etsy page link does not seem to be working on my end lately?
Maybe my player isn't working, I don't know?
I tried to install the new shockwave player but it is still blank.
Is it appearing for you?
Anyways what I did was on my Etsy I click on your etsy and then
under promote click on "Etsy Mini"
and you can build how you want it to look, then you just copy the code and paste it
on Crafthaus in one of the sections or into a blog or what ever.
Hope it works for you!
Thanks for friending me! I look forward to getting to know you! I wondered if that pic of me was always up- or just when I was on crafthaus! James is such a cutie- I just love him and so do my students! He is such a good friend and mentor to me. The doll head is a mannequin that I stumbled upon in Paris last summer. It just screamed Alison! Several people - including my hubby- thought it was me at first glance.
Thanks so much--a former student of mine, Cody, shot the videos for me. They turned out much better than we planned. Did you see the bloopers at the end? Alison is actually a good friend of mine but we did the doll avatars by complete coincidence. My girlfriend, Sandie, surprised me with the modified Ken doll--she did a great job with the likeness, and even fabricated the glasses!
Thanks for the comment! It has taken a while to get them to look right. The challenge now is to see if i can draw with just the materials in front of me. Hopefully I'll have some new pieces to post in a couple of weeks.
thanks so mcuh for your comment, because is about a long period of sadness but at the same time tendernees about fertility. Then if you think is alife for me is more than expect, because i hope to get it someday. Or translate this feelings in my work too.
Thank you for your comment. I just work with sugar. I have developed my own techniques to create my pieces. I am currently doing the MA at the School of Jewellery in Birmingham, so I should have some new images on here soon.
The private view for the show is Saturday 11th September, if you are able to come.
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
The only place for cloth fibers, human hair and dust in my home is the vacuum cleaner, but that's not the case for Japanese artist Takahiro Iwasaki, who loves to use them to create detailed miniature scenes that depict Japan's industrial…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!
