RE: Cease and desist from stalking, harassing, false and defamatory statements

Dear Perpetrator:

This CEASE AND DESIST ORDER is to inform you that your persistent actions including but not limited to my blog, company websites, my personal websites, and social media, sending me e-mails, text messages, and phone calls, have become/been unbearable. You are ORDERED TO STOP such activities immediately as they are being done in violation of the law.

I have the right to remain free from these activities as they constitute harassment, stalking, false and defamatory statements, and I will pursue any legal remedies available to me against you if these activities continue. These remedies include but are not limited to: contacting law enforcement to obtain criminal sanctions against you, and suing you civilly for damages I have incurred as a result of your actions.

Again, you must IMMEDIATELY STOP all unwanted. You risk incurring some very severe legal consequences if you fail to comply with this demand.

This letter acts as your final warning to discontinue this unwanted conduct before I pursue legal actions against you. At this time, I am not filing civil suit against you, however I am prepared to do so if I receive any further harassment, defamation of character, or stalking behavior. Perpetrator acts as a blanket statement out of respect to your privacy. However, I do know who you are. I am not under any circumstances, however, waiving any legal rights I have presently, or future legal remedies against you by sending you this letter. This order acts as ONE FINAL CHANCE for you to cease your illegal activities before I exercise my rights.

Call for Entry: Forget Them

Brooklyn Metal Works is now accepting submissions for our 2016 juried jewelry and object exhibition.

Forget-Them-10-791x1024

We are looking for your talismans, amulets, shrines, charms and the like, that have been created to wear, carry, or look upon. These objects may convey a specific power, intend to protect against superstition, or commemorate.

This call is inspired by a quote from the only surviving poem by Lucretius (c. 99 – c. 55 BCE) – On the Nature of Things.

“There are no angels, demons, or ghosts. Immaterial spirits of any kind do not exist….Forget them.”

Yet it seems that despite our best efforts, we can’t. Our interest in this call lies in humankind’s perennial struggle between personal autonomy and spiritual guidance, and how these ideas manifest and inspire the fabrication of physical objects.

All cultures throughout the ages have taken abstract concepts like gods, demons, imps, and spirits and translated them into material items that are often housed in esteemed spaces. Shrines that celebrate, amulets that protect, and totems that commemorate these enduring theologies and phenomenons. Perhaps the most resilient form of piety, the belief that objects imbued with spiritual reverence might protect or reward the owner withstands the test of time, often despite our better judgment.

“There are no angels, demons, or ghosts. Immaterial spirits of any kind do not exist. The creatures with which the Greek and Roman imagination populated the world—Fates, harpies, demons, genii, nymphs, satyrs, dryads, celestial messengers, and the spirits of the dead—are entirely unreal. Forget them.” – Lucretius

 

This is the call for entry. I’m going to enter my Tension Among the Ropes Series. Hopefully I will be accepted, but if not, at least I tried.

Super excited to announce that my line of handmade repurposed jewelry is for sale in downtown Little Rock at the Freckled Frog.

Can I fund the end human traffiking series I want to create? Restart the recycled aluminum license plate series, cause now they have a stronger meaning and purpose. Start a school for abused kids locally in Little Rock, AR. While being threatened? Can I get my studio back, a home, I am willing to make the effort. Working on it.

 

What is Metalsmithing….

Jewelers often refer to their craft as metalsmithing, and many universities offer degree programs in metalsmithing, jewelry, enameling and blacksmithing under the auspices of their fine arts programs. (excerpts taken from Wikipedia.org)

metalsmith or simply smith is a craftsman fashioning tools or works of art out of various metals.

As an English suffix-smith connotes a meaning of specialized craftsmen — for example, wordsmithand tunesmith are nouns synonymous with writer or songwriter, respectively.

Types of metalsmiths:

My fields of interest/studies: Silversmith, Pewtersmith, Goldsmith, Coppersmith, Brassfounder, Blacksmith.
