Dear Orchid Members,
I have just relocated to Cleveland Ohio from Baltimore Maryland. I’d
like to know if there are any jewelry/metalsmithing/art groups I
could join. I’ve been doing some research online and I’ve found art
guilds but nothing specifically jewelry related. If you know of any
jewelry groups please let me know. I’m getting to know the area and
hoping to make some friends.
Welcome to Ohio, Valerie! There are lots of great jewelry
artists/studio jewelers here, although I have to confess I’ve been
too busy to find many affiliated groups.
One that may interest you is Ohio Designer Craftsmen (I’m a member
there). I love the work on your website and think this group might
be a good fit for starters. There are also some really good art shows
coming up this summer in the Cleveland area.
If you ever want to chat or just have some one to tour the shows
with, contact me offline.
