american craft exposition

i leave for the american craft exposition next tuesday. i've been working on one-of-a-kind pieces for this show, both line drawings and borderlines. the above picture is a new brooch which i am really excited about. i think a big necklace needs to happen next.
i will be one of 12 different emerging artists at the show. we will be grouped together much like at the acc searchlight show i did back in february. the other emerging jewelers are grace chin (first image below) and genevieve yang (second image below). the list of other jewelers is pretty incredible (biba schutz, sandra enterline, pat flynn to name a few) and i am excited to see their work in person.

the show takes place in evanston, il, near chicago. i've never been to chicago before and i am looking forward to spending some time there. i here the museums and food are excellent!

Yeah! You'll kill it in Evanston, and I hope you have a rad time kicking around Chicago. Holla if you need anything else in the way of suggestions, directions &c.
