Let's talk about jewelry! It's summer, and the heat is already rising in Texas. Summer makes me think of simple clothing that has vibrant color, but I want nothing to do with any clothing that could add to the temperature. Today we're talking about summer trends and how to dress up a simple summer look with some great jewelry.
This Thursday, May 22nd at 3 p.m. PDT, we'll be going back into the MetalSmith BenchTalk archives. We'll be re-airing one of our favoite chats with jewelry and hollowware designer and maker Cynthia Eid.
About: Cynthia Eid's hammered metalwork has won awards for creativity and design, featured in many publications, and exhibited extensively. Eid's sculptural jewelry and hollowware is primarily done in Argentium Silver and formed through the creative use of hammers and/or a hydraulic press. Currently an independent metalsmith and educator, she is a Jeweler and Silversmith based in Massachusetts USA, teaching weekly classes at Metalwerx and the De Cordova Museum School, and workshops and short courses all over the USA. Previously, she has worked as a designer/maker in goldsmith galleries, and as modelmaker/supervisor in a gold jewelry factory. Cynthia earned her Master of Fine Arts in Metalsmithing and Jewellery Design from Indiana University in 1980 and has a B.S. in Art Education.
The paradox that “soft”, fluid-looking metal has evolved from flat, stiff rectangles though force, determination, and tenacity enchants me. I am entranced by the metal’s progressive transformation -- through hammering, persuasion, and struggle --- from a lifeless plane of metal toward an object of vibrancy, unity and fluidity.
Experimentation, serendipity, a sense of play, and the subconscious mind determine the forms of my work. The forms have their roots in my gardens, and my meanderings through the woods and along the water’s edge. In my work, the allusions to nature are intentionally ambiguous, to encourage interactive response and contemplation by the viewer.

About Marilyn Harper and Joeaux Robey
After becoming a Reiki Master, Marilyn realized Beings were contacting her to communicate with either her or others. In 1999, following a car wreck, Adironnda – the Galactic brother of Abraham (Hicks), from the 17th dimension, began to speak directly through her. Adironnda is a multi-dimensional spokes-being that works with a council from Source energy.
After a very synchronistic meeting with Marilyn in 2010, Joeaux left her corporate marketing job and began assisting Marilyn to spread the messages of Adironnda. Together, they have dedicated their life to expanding the messages of Spirit: Marilyn as a Divine Link, and Joeaux as a Visionary Guide.
They co-founded Adironnda & Company, creating Spiritually based, motivational experiences, and Visionaries in Light Convergence (formerly called The Walk-ins Welcome Conference) - a gathering for people who are seeking out-of--this world, Spiritual experiences and like-minded community.

This week on "TheMusicBox" w/ Nat'l Recording Artist Tanya Dallas-Lewis! Meet Nigerian music sensation, Jumbo Aniebiet!
The son of a Jazz musician, and a native of Nigeria, it would seem that it was destiny that Jumbo Aniebiet would follow a path that led to music. Instead, he had hopes of becoming a doctor, an architect or even an engineer. But a tragic event in Jumbo's childhood would ensure that music would be a constant in his life.
Hear more of his touching story and meet me *this* Thursday at 8pm EST, with your best African attire, garb or jewelry on, as we introduce the Nigerian music sensation himself, Mr. Jumbo Aniebiet! We will debut his new single "Bigger Than" from his debut album titled "Brand New Day,"--a move which has thrilled his growing fans across the world.
Plus, the best in gospel music, news, interviews, how-to's and so much more, as I open up ''MY'' music box and share with you what's inside!
Don't be late.... No ''CP' 'time over here, lol! (black people insider, I couldn't resist!)

My guest this Thursday, July 26th at 3 p.m. PDT on MetalSmith BenchTalk is David LaPlantz (aka D. D. Deco), an active, producing jeweler and metalsmith. He flirts back and forth between jewelry and social commentary sculpture.
About: David LaPlantz is included in Who’s Who in American Art and Who’s Who in the West and was named Humboldt State University’s “Outstanding Professor” in 1981. He received a Fulbright Grant in 1985 to travel throughout New Zealand to conduct master jewelry workshops, and received the Humboldt State University “Scholar of the Year” Award in 1994.
From 1967 through 2002, LaPlantz led an energetic dual life as both a full time jewelry and metalsmithing teacher and full time studio artist. Balancing his precious time between the two, he carved out a career comprised of imparting knowledge and creating art jewelry and sculpture, while trying to retain his sanity. LaPlantz is currently a full time studio artist living on the high desert of Santa Fe, New Mexico.
LaPlantz has always been an active, productive jeweler and metalsmith. His most recent jewelry involves the use of Vegetable Ivory (tagua nut) and /or industrially painted aluminum, which he engraves, stacks and cold connects together. LaPlantz’s sculptural pieces visually explore more political and philosophical topics such as blacklisting in the entertainment industry, payola scandals in the music industry and in radio, along with the “spoken word” as demonstrated in his ‘Art Microphones.’
