I did an interview for The State Press Magazine about my Etsy shop.  To read it, follow this link.

Anna Davern

Just came across the Australian artist Anna Davern the other day.   Admittedly, I know nothing about the politics down under, but this kind of makes me wish I did.  I really like these brooches anyway :)

Check out her website via the link above for more really great metalwork!

And, a special shout out to Amanda Scheutzow, an ASU undergraduate student who won first place for her metal piece, "Release"!!


MJSA Scholarship

MJSA, the Manufacturing Jewelers & Suppliers of America offer a number of competitive scholarships every year for the students pursuing degrees in metals related fields.  I just found out that this year, I am one of them!  I am so excited... absolutely thrilled!!!  It's going to help so much!

MJSA awarded $7,200.00 total this year, split between four students from across the country.  It's awesome that the foundation is able to consistently offer so many substantial awards, as there aren't many out there for us metalsmiths.

Congrats to the other winners:
Julia Heineccius,  Davina Romansky, and Alexander Walker

& many, many thanks to MJSA and the Rhode Island Foundation!
