We finally got a house!  Well, we don't close on it till the end of the month but then it will be ours.  I am so excited, I will have a studio again.

In other news, I got my resins and I am making molds.  Hopefully soon there will be some real progress on this idea of mine...  One can hope.

So I have a new jewelry experiment that uses little tiny pieces of original art and frames them with wire wrapping into necklaces and pins and such.  Not sure how it is going to work.  I am going to need thin glass and brass wire and money to buy the supplies… *sigh* experimentation is expensive.

I already have several pictures sketched and inked just waiting to experiment with, however all my tools and things are still boxed up.  The bank better ok us getting the house soon, silly bank I want my studio back!

There have been a lot of changes in my life recently.  For one I got married.  For another we are looking to get a house so my entire studio is packed in boxes in the garage.  Hard to be without my studio.

Hello 2009

Mon Jan 19, 2009, 3:47 PM
Been a lot of things on the tube about the end of the world lately.  Made me think long and hard about my place in the cosmos.  Depending on what you believe it can be a enlightening or depressing experience.  

The subject has inspired a massive amount of drawing and jewelry-making ideas and plans to swirl around in my head.  So here's hoping the end isn't near, gonna need years to get these inspirations out.

Banner Contest

Mon Jun 9, 2008, 3:38 PM
Banner time! Doo doodoodoo doodoo doodoo
Oh no I just dated myself.....

Hello All,

So I was thinking, I know it's a dangerous thing,   I do not really have the ability to make an advertising banner for my store myself so I figured... A contest!  

I desperately need a banner that shows some of what I sell: jewelry, chainmail jewelry, masks, etc.  And I wanted one that would flash through images of each of these things. Or one that adequately showed them.  My time is short so the deadline will be June 30th.

So here are the details:

large banner: around 728px wide by 90px tall
Or
Small banner: around 468px wide by 60px tall
Or
A Tower Banner: around 160px wide x 550px tall

Requirements:
*'Metallic Visions' displayed prominently
*The website 'www.metallicvisions.com' also displayed prominently
*a selection of jewelry, chainmail jewelry, Masks, etc.

You can do one or more but submit each separately. The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place pieces will be used to advertise on the internet for the Metallic Visions store AND the artists who made the banners will get Credit on the store home pages.

Any of the photos from the store:  or my DA page here can be used and I am putting up a good version of my custom store name pic.

Prizes:
Well of course I have prizes...

*1st: Will receive $50 worth of merchandise from the store or a custom piece of jewelry or mask worth $50

**2nd: Will receive $30 worth of merchandise from the store or a custom piece of jewelry or mask worth $30

***3rd: Will receive $25 worth of merchandise from the store or a custom piece of jewelry or mask worth $25

Any questions or requests please note me.

Conduit was wonderful.  The masks went really fast and everyone seemed to love them.  currently i have some jewelry in a shop in SLC called Razor's Edge.  I am also working with several other shops who are interested in my stuff.

Once I get back on my feet there will be more jewelry and masks popping up here.

Take care all!

Hello all and welcome to my world, hope you survive it.
This is my second DA account devoted to my Artisan side as opposed to my Illustrator side.  I started out here on DA as just a 2d traditional illustrator but over time it began to feel restrictive to me.  So after several health issues that have kept me from keeping a full time job, I decided to make my own job.  Thus Metallic Visions was born.  It consists of what you will see here as well as bags, scarves, maybe a snake wig, and the occasional cloak or full costume that may appear from time to time.
