I love Tzuri Gueta her work is amazing, its such a great idea! I have put some of her other work on my blog a while ago but i have a new found love.
This image is beautiful it sweet and draws people in. Her website has so many images of her work you can see all the wonderful things she has created.
Check her website out! you will not regret it, i promise.
I helped Donna at the Washington Craft Show, her work is awesome. I liked her website because of the design going down the left side of her site, these are pins she sells, they are made of steel and plastic. You can clearly identify her work from her site, and that is great branding.
Arthur Hash has a very interactive website, its a lot of fun to navigate, everything moves! Its very him, its funky and hip, even the font is created in this way. His website is working for him.
I liked Bettina Speckner website because it is simple and on the front page displays her work. Its not complicated and easy to navigate, this is probably the style i will start off with when creating my own website.
Sarah Graham always uses the color red, her signature color. She includes this color in all her promotional materials, this helps create her brand. Sarah Graham has got branding down!

I liked Lauren Kalman's website because it was simple just like her work, all her images are clear and polished this style is reflected with in her website.

Mushroom clusters.
I really liked the textures found on some of them, they could be really interesting with enamel on top.

The repeate of the same object creates volume in the piece, the bead is so small but with so many of them a mass is created.


I am drawn to clusters and groupings of objects. I don't know why but it is interesting that this is a theme that runs threw much of my work. For my last semester i would like to explore and further developer my fascination with groups and clusters of objects. Here are some images that contain groupings.
So many seeds!

I really like the barnacles. I can already see these groupings being worn on the body as jewelry.

Wonderful creative idea, His jewelry objects are just as strong and as interesting as his larger vessels. I really love this work.

These lovely jewelry pieces are enameled with many layers, throughly blending the colors of the enamel together creating a painterly feel.

Enamel and Electroform

A book i would like to get my hands on.

Pigeon Point Glass

Pigeon Point Glass combines glass and electroformed leaves to create little glass and metal beads, very cute and unique. We had discussed in class the combination of different materials, some being electroformed and others remaining in their original state. This is a great example of material combinations.


Instructables is a website that provides directions on creative art process, it even had an entry on Electroforming! The instructions provided were accompanied by step by step images that really helped to show the process. Very Cool!!

This is the before and after of the flower that has been electroformed.
