Hi Brigitte. It is really great to be featured on crafthaus. Several colleagues and friends have gotten in touch with me this week because of it. Thank you. I hope all is well in Pittsburgh.

You are the best, Brigitte! You are totally right. I do have an academic art background, just not in jewelry. Art History and Ceramics. I did this while also going to music school (UMKC Conservatory). I will give all of this thought, and make extra efforts to find my missing flip cam....heehee...
Thanks for listening!

Heehee... I am brand new to facebook... I was a hold out. One thing I know already... Facebook is way faster and more complicated than I am used to. I am still learning ;-)

The reason I posed the question I did, is that I wondered if I have a voice here... if people are interested at all. There are several reasons I wonder this is that. I am one of not very many people doing more or less "traditional" jewelry pieces. Also, I find that artists who fabricate and cast, and do all of those other metal techniques feel strongly that work being done in wire, unless it is highly conceptual work, is not valid, or at best, inferior. I am finding, in a traditional art school atmosphere, that my voice really isn't heard. I comment on people's work and ask questions, and most of the time it seems not to be appreciated. I love the work I do, and I know a lot about fabrication, casting etc. I just don't have the resources to set up that kind of studio. Nor, do I have the resources to set up a ceramics studio (something I am very skilled at).

So, that said... I just wanted to find out if people are even giving me a second glance. I don't need the validation. But, I am wanting to be involved with this community. I think it is really neat and I feel at home in an art community. I am inspired and always want to grow.

Hi Brigitte, thank you. Are you planning to attend the opening? I will be there. I am planning to write about it later in the Inside Brazil blog.

I just met a girl whose work would go well, I think- I'm sending her the submission info so hopefully you'll be getting one more soon too :)

If we come up with any sort of collaboration, I will make sure it is documented for Crafthaus.

Thanks for that, Brigitte. It won't surprise you to know that we've already chatted and I have invited him to visit Glasgow! How well you know your artists!

Brigitte, I am glad too! I will be at the Members Services Table as I am in charge of that. So, you will be able to find me there, for sure! Seattle is my home town and I would love to take you some of my favorite places for dinner. Let's get Andy to pay for it, wink, wink ;~D
