Not to be funny or anything, but I think I may need to consider this silver chin armor for all us feather weight wrestlers out there. Best thing I've heard all week! I thank your subconscious metalsmither.
I know you are taunting me now... stop. Great to see you here! Your pieces are so very nice. It's been so long since we've seen you. How have you been? I see your piece every time I'm past the Lisa Sette Gallery. When will you have another opening there? Make sure you look us up the next time you are here. I miss having you around... the banter was always so much fun. About Marshall Way, though; kind of depressing - not the same place it used to be. Quite a few empty stores.
How old is Wren now? and do you have another child as well? We do, his name is Vernon... he's born last May 15th. I hope all is well with you. keep in touch.
The students that applied are the best that I have! They're great. They have been selective regarding their choices and really want to work with you and Lisa. I don't believe in accepting my former undergraduates graduates into my MFA program. If I did, I would not hesitate to accept these students.
The semester is underway (my second week) and I have never been so busy. I hope the workload lets up. How are things going in Madison? How's your family?

My love affair with fine metals started several years ago when I was able to take a Young Artists Workshop at Moore College of Art and Design. After my first jewelry class and I was pretty much hooked. I continued chasing the dream and received my BFA in Studio Art, concentrating in Metals from Rowan University, while studying under Jill Baker Gower. I am grateful that I was able to find my focus, enameling, and really develop a body of work within the few years following my gradation.…See More
I am happy to share with all of you more images of wonderful brooches from artists around the word. I had so many submissions on my first call that I had to create a second part exhibition. This exhibition focuses on a side of the brooch we usually do not pay much attention to: the back side. Our first look is naturally always trained at the front, but when we do take the time to look at the back of a brooch, it will oftentimes reveal a surprising aspect for us, a delightful little secret.
