Art jeweler and author Lorena Angelo contacted several artists last summer about a project she was compiling called Behind the Brooch. She stumbled across my work on Crafthaus, so I’m lucky to be included in this forthcoming publication. It’s recently been announced that the book will be out this coming February, 2014 thanks to Schiffer Publishing. The concept of the book is to expose and share the reverse sides of brooches. Whether it’s a nifty pin back/mechanism or just really neat detail, metalsmiths put as much time, (sometimes more!) addressing the side of a piece that not many people will appreciate.
Mark your calendars! Although I can’t say which of my pieces will be featured, I can point you towards Lorena’s Blog and some other places with more information.
