Hi Guy G.
I took a look at the fabulous jewellery that each artist had. It was
all great, great use of metals, gems, techniques. Also it looked as
each used the techniques with precision and to perfection. Although
I have been making jewellery for over twenty years it has only been
the last 5 that I thought of my work as Art. Now I am taking courses
as it can afford and learning the techniques beyond the more basic.
One of the things I have learned since joining our local metal arts
guild, Metalphoric, is that true art is supposed to invoke and
emotion in you. To me 2 of the artists there did that on top of
stunning me with their skill, Karen and Kathleen. It was hard to
pick so for me I picked the one I had not yet heard of before in the
hope that it would help her career as I know the other one is quite
well known. It was even hard then.
