I think the change will be good. One of the things I most enjoy is to design a piece in the loft where have my drawing table and materials and then take the design down to the garage! where I have my workshop and start working on the metal. You are right, teaching does take out a lot from one. Sometimes we need to be quiet with ourselves to recharge the creative batteries.

I find that jewelry has become as hectic as life is today. More pieces, less quality, less attention to detail, frantic chase for innovations that are taken for art and endless momentary gratification rather than appreciation of all the qualities that go into making a timeless piece---like your mulberry leaves pieces. They are exquisite. Good luck with your move. Will drop you a note when I post new work in about a week or two. I am finally turning my portfolio site into a website and it is a lot of work. Take care, Sophia

It is very nice to connect with you too and exchange ideas. I have been working in metals for the past six years. I am a Classics professor by training who after 18 years of teaching decided to change direction and take up what used to be my hobby, jewelry-making, seriously. I love working in metals and love translating the images in my head into tangible pieces. My teacher says that the more complicated the piece the more interested I am. Perhaps he is right.

I value your opinion of my work since it is only recently I decided to create a portfolio page and join Crafthaus and SNAG. I am still trying to find an individual voice-- I want to explore the properties of gold and silver the way the ancient Eastern  traditions did--not rely on flamboyant stones in lieu of design-- but use the metals themselves to their utmost potential. Needless to say during these six years I learned how to be patient and not rush the metal. If you listen to it, it will do what you want. Thanks again!

Genevieve,Thank you! They are one of a kind and I still have not perfected the method yet. I am now trying to work similar designs on precious metal clay as it has far greater malleability. I am still though at the experimental stage!

I'm looking forward to teaching at the Art Institute!  February I'm teaching a couple of one day intro to pmc classes but in April I start teaching a weekly class for 4 weeks.  The classes are going to be at both the main campus and the Northland.  They have an absolutely gorgeous new facility up north and what a great group of people to work with!

Taking a class from Michael was one of the most relaxing things I've ever done!  He even got ME to slow down.  Wonderful experience and wonderful teacher.  You really have an amazing line up of instructors coming to your studio.  Makes my knees weak!

Your work is amazing as always!  It was fun to sign onto Crafthaus and see your stunning leaf mezuzah.  I thought, "I know that impeccable work!"

Welcome to crafthaus, the network for craft artists, and those who support them! I am very glad you joined us !

Please feel free to look around, meet old friends, make new ones, and start adding your thoughts to the groups, blogs and discussion forums 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. Crafthaus is a participatory sport ! The more you put into it, the more you will get out of it, for sure.

Please note that crafthaus is both a fully edited and a member-financed website, meaning that a small annual fee ($20/yr or $35/2yrs) is involved in being a member here. You will find all the necessary information on how to go about this in the FAQs section of the site. Your membership fee is due on or before June 15, 2010 and is payable through paypal (preferred,) US check or credit card.

ALL images sent to the website editor will be vetted to assure some measure of overall quality control. Unlike other image sharing websites, crafthaus is not a "free-for-all". Members present their work in front of an educated and critical audience (their peers,) so the images have to be GREAT. Our goal is to show our members' work in the best possible light, and from the many images received daily, we try to post as many as possible. Crafthaus heartily encourages comments from the membership, however with regard to photos posted or not, we have a strict "NO WHINING" policy in effect ! If your photos do not get posted they are just not as good as they need to be. Yes, it's really that simple. Just reshoot and resubmit ! No harm done.

Finally, if there are ever any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me via crafthauseditor@live.com anytime. I will do my best to be of help. I really hope you will enjoy being with this network, and will find the exchanges interesting and fun.

Again: Welcome and enjoy !

Brigitte Martin
Crafthaus Editor
