Here is an article about an upcoming show of jewelry artists in Barrio Logan area at Glashaus art space, 1815-B Main St.”… six designers’ work will be on full display at the West Window Jewelry Exhibition on Saturday, Nov. 12, from 6 to 10 p.m.”  I found Alex Garcia’s work on his Facebook page to be particularly interesting and thought provoking.

One King’s Lane, a shopping site, is featuring Mexican Modern Jewelry, a mix of vintage Taxco and Art Deco one-of-a-kind pieces.  I saw this bracelet and was instantly smitten.  In my metal smithing class, we are working on hollow forms.  This bracelet is a series of hollow forms that have been riveted together, but how?

I’m not sure if this bracelet is a hollow form, but I would love to own that baby.
