I am a goldsmith who started out enameling [in my bedroom] as a
teenager. I took classes at Kent State with Mel Someroski and went
to Penland where I took a class from Jamie Bennett [Penland is my
personal version of Heaven]. I did lots of enameling for many years.
Once I started working for a custom goldsmith shop, I moved away
from enamel. I’ve only done a few cloisonne and plique-a-jour pieces
in the last many years. Orchid is jump- starting my interest again.

I read the updated website address, went to the website. The
conference class with Dave Freda in 2003 looks like it would have
been very informative! I hope Karen or another Enamel Society member
can tell me whether there is going to be a 2004 conference and if
so, where will it be held?

Hi Jennifer There is going to be a conference for the Enamelist
Society in 2005 somewhere in the eastern United States. I don’t
think final negotiations on a site have been completed. I believe
that listings of workshops being taught by members in 2004 was going
to be on the website soon. Keep checking with the website for info
on the conference. Cathy
