ARTIST STATEMENT

 

            “What is particularly distinctive about my jewellery is its naturalness of form, free from fashionable compromise and extravagance.  My jewellery designs testify to the textural dynamic and technical volition behind my work, seemingly to have evolved from organic origins taking on an industrial influence.  The ever changing interplay of colors and textures creates dynamic contrasts – evoking a vividness of exquisite dimensions – is rich, alluring and of the utmost elegance.”

Thanks Melody! No need for we artists to toil in isolation, when impressive sites like this one are available. I am on Flickr (Denver Don) and can be seen at: spotlightonvisualart.ca until I get a web site back up.

At 10:30am on March 22, 2009, Michele said…Thanks for the friend invite Melody. I am very new to metal work and have been completely consumed by it! I did not know such a passion existed. As I only took one course in silversmith techniques of jewelry making, I am, and will continue to be, primarily self-taught. This site seemed like an amazing sharing and support for metal artists in Canada!
If you know of anyone selling tools, I would be most interested. I am now looking for a used rolling mill in good condition as it is getting very expensive starting out! Thanks!
