    I have a B.A. in sculpture from the University of New Orleans. Since 2010 I have been studying metalsmithing at Lone Star college with Martha Ferguson.

    Becky Burt

    I was the kid who always had a pocket full of rocks and shells and strange pieces of wood or plastic; things from streams, the beach, the playground, or the floor of the forest. Objects draw me with their shape or texture, and I’ll often pick up something without a clear idea of what I’ll […]

    Nathan Dube

    My work expands on my interest in childhood play, by exploring its relationship to humor, aggression, and how the contemporary adult male identity is constructed in American culture.  The work uses childhood pranks and toys, reinterpreted as high-end adult objects, to highlight the aggressive and sometimes violent ways in which men interact with other men.  […]

    Terry Fromm

    Terry Fromm’s metal art reflects her experience with and influence by a variety of materials as she uses metals in ways similar to using fabrics in clothing and quilt construction in the past.  She utilizes the properties of metal to either soften and form it into fluid shapes resembling ribbons and fabric folds, or to […]

    In 2014 at the age of 54 I was diagnosed with cancer.  At 56 I figured out what really mattered to me in life.  At the beginning of 2016 I launched Suarez Silver Jewelry.  Here comes the no-no part, where every PR and marketing guru tells you don’t go. Well, screw that.  I make jewelry […]

    Jan Harrell

    This new body of enameled sculpture contains objects gifted to a larger than life persona — a muse. This bawdy and joyful goddess embraces life to its fullest and grabs a bit more when she gets the chance. These oversized gifts are particular to her feminine and robust tastes. A thorny rose bouquet, a string […]

    Cathy Prieto-Smith

    I have made jewelry for as long as I can remember. My teenage years I adorned myself with all my creations. Broken jewelry, leather scraps, wire, nuts and bolts, old fishing lures – there were possibilities in everything I found. I went official in 1998 with Charisma Designs. I sold my first “collection” of adorned […]

    I like to make jewelry that is provocative and stimulating. My jewelry is not for the timid, but for those who know who they are, and are comfortable with themselves. I want my jewelry to bring others into the soul of the wearer, and to know who they are by what they wear. The processes […]
