Check out my article for the Art Jewelry Forum blog!
I wish I could take credit for the title, but it was gifted by Damian Skinner.
No, it isn't a particularly flattering photo of me, but it's honest. I may have slept since returning, but I still feel as tired as I look in this picture from the final night Party. From left to right, Heejin Hwang, Brigitte Martin, Satomi Kawai, and some crazy lady.
I have a ridiculous amount of work to do now that I'm back. A few more wrap up posts for Crafthaus, a more in depth article for another publication (more info. later!), work to finish for a show in Berlin at Schmuckfrage called "underwaterlove", and an order to fill asap. Oh, and lingering commissions I put off when getting ready for the conference.
I met so many wonderful people in Houston and had brief moments to catch up with old friends as well. Next year I plan to reassess my time budgeting. This year was a little too intense for me and my lapsed social skills now that I'm an art hermit.
I hope everyone who wanted a Swap Pin received one. If not, there's always next year!
