Finished this today:
Imperial Zircon in sterling silver, 1.5″ diameter.
Tomorrow is a photo day; taking “real” pics of the above (ie ones that don’t suck) and a few others.
So news: of the four applications I submitted last week, two have already come back positive. Two of my images were selected for Pratt’s upcoming “Made at Pratt” show, for the month of May. Also, I was accepted to the Fremont Fair, so I’ll be showing/selling there. This will be something of an experiment, so we’ll see how it works out — I’ll have lots of lower end, impulse-buy crafty things, because I think that’s what will move for that show… but it will be interesting to see if I get bites on the hand-crafted art jewelry, too. (I just might.)
“Made at Pratt” will include the following:
Spinner Pendant (ironically, not made at Pratt; just recent work by me, a Pratt artist)
This one will be on display in their gallery in Pioneer Square. Unfortunately, it’s not for sale; this is the prototype for the series… ie, this one is mine. Photo by Matt Bamberger.
Hatpin Series – these were part of the collection I showed at Norwescon. Enamel on etched copper, with sterling silver fittings and feather inserts; brooch section is 2″ tall (not including feathers).
They’ll be on display at Pratt’s main building, in the front hallway display area. Though I’m happy to have work in the Pioneer Square location too, I think these will get seen by a lot more people. And they are for sale! Photo by me.
