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.

Your work is beautiful!

A modern metalsmith/metal artist can be found working in traditional metals as well as in nontraditional materials. The designs can range from the classic to the extravagant, and the techniques can either be centuries old or decidedly current.

The wide range of expression preferences, design options, materials, and processes has lead within our field to unfavorable misconceptions, misunderstandings and in some cases even outright disdain between artists. Can the metal and jewelry field overcome its division and send out a much-needed signal?

We appreciate and respect our historical past and acknowledge that current materials have a rightful place in jewelry/object making!

Arriving at this message is the goal of this traveling exhibition opening at the SNAG conference in Boston 2015, Velvet da Vinci, San Francisco, CA - Aug 19 - Sept 20, 2015, Equinox Gallery, San Antonio, TX - Oct 16 - Nov 15, 2015, Baltimore Jewelry Center, Baltimore, MD - Dec 11, 2015 - Jan 08, 2016, Brooklyn Metal Works, Brooklyn, NY - Feb 5 - Mar 4, 2016.

DETAILS on exhibition premise, call for artists, submission guidelines.....

"Hello Rachel and Brigitte, I have a question regarding quantities: is each collaborative pair allowed to make one piece or can there be a grouping of pieces? Especially if they are not giant sized?  "

Ife Head and Collar

I've been in the workshop a lot over the last week - not all of which has been to bury my head in the sand away from the increasingly nasty pro- and anti-independence campaigns in Scotland (which is also why I've not been so active on social media recently). Mostly, I've been working on commissions - a set of buttons, a couple of rings - and the collar…See More
