New book project about Tim McCreight

Hi everyone!

I’m very pleased to announce that Ganoksin member Abby Johnston recently launched a book project about Tim McCreight, an author and jeweler whose work we have published on Ganoksin. Here is a little more information about the project:

What does it mean to be a maker? And, if your brand of making breaks barriers, what kind of mark does that leave? Learn what it means in “Tim McCreight: Marks of a Maker” by Abby Johnston, a comprehensive book that examines through essays, interviews, images and discourse, the unique and indelible marks this esteemed professor, preeminent publisher, metalworker, and philanthropist has left on the craft community in Maine and worldwide.

Available from Wild Chi Press, 2025

Good luck, Abby! We can’t wait to read it when it’s done.


Hi Lisa,

Thanks for the introduction and I am honored to be able to share Tim’s legacy with the greater jewelry community. If you’d like to learn more about the book project, please visit the book’s website:

Stay tuned for more soon!
