Just uploaded four images of the two pieces from Art Jewelry 3. Two are still awaiting approval (what did I do wrong uploading them????). But I neglected to enter descriptions for those two. Any way I can still do that?
The photography of all three main images on my site were done by Peter von Klueger here in NYC. There was a whole water theme to the photoshoot and the one image with the pasties... well it is sexual ... but how can it not be - they are pasties. The model didn't have to have anything pierced since we used double stick tape to put on the pasties. Usually they are worn like brooches with needles in the back. The first one of the series I made for my jewelry/art show at the V&V Gallery in Vienna where I made them for my black dress since all my jewelry I had was being exhibited. I got great response and then an actress/singer ordered those in larger and gold for herself. I love the reaction I am getting. Aren't we supposed to celebrate our bodies? If you click on the "see more work" a pdf will download (takes a couple of seconds) and then you can see more images inside of the pasties - I have a shot of them on a black tank top too.

"Just to respond to a few sentences in this particular post: John said, "At the SNAG conference almost everyone had a college degree in the arts." Actually I think you might be surprised at the number of people at the Conference and…"
"I'm with you, Emanuela. But let me respond from the perspective of the people I talked with: the talent lies in who and how you use the technology.
I guess time will prove or disprove this. In the meantime, I'm much more content to feel…"
I come from a very different background than most at the conference. I apprenticed with a self taught flutemaker. After 3 years, the only CV I left with was a flute I made that got me hired by a Boston company. I designed my own flute from experience and imagination. To this day my work has always been my only resume.At the SNAG conference almost everyone had a college degree in the arts. Whenever a speaker was introduced, their education highlights were listed along with the schools they were…See More
