Congratulations on the newspaper article and selling your work at CMA! I hope they continue to carry your work as well. I was traveling through Ohio after attending the Enamelist Society conference in Covington, KY. It has been a couple of years since I've spent any time in northeast Ohio.

Hi Michael, I saw your enameled jewelry in the Cleveland Museum of Art gift shop this week...it's wonderful! This is one of my favorite museums and I was happy to see an enamelist represented in their shop. Take care, Leslie

Thank you for sharing your experience with the shows Michael. Your work is as good as it gets and your string of rejections only points out the fickle nature of jurying. Yes, you have to have good work, good photos etc. You have all that and more. In our opinion it boils down to the more shows you apply to, the more you get in to. Don't doubt your work in the slightest. You are one of the finest enamelists out there. Who knows why you got accepted to this show and not another. We are happy for you.

Thank you for making me discover the beauty of enamel. I saw beautiful pieces before, but your work triggered the "click" in my head.
Congratulations on your craftsmanship.

Behind the Brooch part 2

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.
