Etsy Metal at the Atlanta Contemporary Jewelry Show

This past weekend I attended the 2nd Annual Atlanta Contemporary Jewelry Show. The artists in the show represent the pinnacle of contemporary jewelry in the United States. Two of etsymetal's members were represented at this prestigious invite only show--Danielle Miller
and Lena Echelle

While in Atlanta I got to visit with Alicia Istanbul and Ashley Akers It was great to get to see all of these etsy peeps face to face. I feel like it was a reunion and not a first time meeting. I also got to visit with my talented brother in law, Leif Westermark. We gave him some of Danielle's abacus cufflinks for his birthday and Christmas. He LOVED them.

I got to meet one of my hero's in the metalsmithing world face to face. Harold O'Conner is a world renowned artist who's work has been featured in all the Lark Jewelry Publications, Jewelry Artists by Lapidary Journal, Art Jewelry, and Metalsmith, and his work is in galleries all over the world. For more detailed information please see

Lena talking with Alicia and Ashley watching the cases.

I really had a great time. Spending time with you was the highlight of my weekend. Hans likes to say I'm in my element, but I do like to talk! Danielle, I was honored that you would let me help out in your booth! (It was great fun to sell something other than my own work!)
