Kathryn from KathrynRiechert and Alicia from IstanbulDesigns will be at the Alpharetta Arts Streetsfest this weekend, April 18th and 19th, in Alpharetta, GA. Get on out there and support them!
There is a new page on the Victoria and Albert Museum (London, UK) website called "Find, Make, Wear" which features selections from the V & A flickr page of the same name. Artists were asked to post photos of jewelry made from recycled materials, and jewelry professor Dorothy Hogg chose several out of the hundreds of contributors to post on the new V & A page. Three EtsyMetal members are represented!--Laura, from tangerinetreehouse, Colleen from colleenbaran, and Sarah from SarahHoodJewelry (me!).
Beth from bcyrjewelry is doing a give away on the blog Down and Out Chic. Enter the contest to win a pair of earrings from her lovely Organic Vines Collection!
Last but not least, if you're in the NYC area, don't forget to head over to SOFA New York 2009, which runs from April 15th through 19th at the Park Avenue Armory. EtsyMetal members Tosca from nanopod and Lynette from Asymmetry will have work in the show. See the April 15th blog post below for more information.
