Welcome to a mini One-a-day challenge. I will post a new piece every day until Winterfair...
Here we are in the home stretch. Columbus Winterfair 2011 is just ELEVEN days away. It's Columbus's largest annual fine art and craft show, and by far the biggest event I've ever done. The folks who organize this show have given me the chance of a lifetime -- their Columbus Winterfair Emerging Artist Scholarship. I look at the other artists represented at the show and can hardly catch my breath. "Fine art and craft made in American studios" -- by artists all over America -- and the work is beautiful. There will be over 400 exhibitors and about 18,000 shoppers. To put it mildly, I'm more than a little bit nervous.
I decided to start a mini One-a-day challenge to count down the days to Winterfair. Some of you might remember my March One-a-day challenge (3-min video here), and that really helped me stay focused. And focus is what I need right now. So every day until the show, please stop by to see a piece of jewelry I made that day for the show. Feedback and suggestions welcome, of course!
Today's piece is a copper fold form cuff. The top is made with a technique called "chasing on air." Fold forming is my favorite metalsmithing technique because of its organic looking results. I hope you'll stop by each day until the show!

I love your cuff. I love the way the top of the cuff looks.

This began as a hobbyist's blog.
Over time it became a quest to support & connect metalsmiths around the globe who use foldforming techniques in their work.
See how it all
