Life has a way of drop kicking you in certain directions, and it seems for my partner and I, we're being kicked in a westerly direction - Edmonton, in particular.
I'm sure there have to be a few of you out there, and I'd love to establish a few connections before I go. I have no idea what the local jewellery community (or the craft community in general) is like. Are there any collective studios? Interesting galleries I should check out? (Besides Influx, of course.)
I've also had a look, and it seems like there aren't many suppliers in the province - are the any recommendations for raw metals, casters, engravers, etc. in British Columbia, or does everything still get sent back and forth to Toronto?
If you do an advanced search in the membership section - you can choose to search by province. That should bring up our Alberta members. If you ask them to friend you, you can make some personal connections! Sometimes people don't look at the forum discussions ...
