This Thursday, October 31st at 3 p.m. PDT on MetalSmith BenchTalk, we'll be going back into the archives for one of our favorite past episodes- a chat with artist and jeweler Sydney Lynch. About: Since 1981, jewelry artist Sydney Lynch has been designing and making her handmade jewelry featuring contemporary earrings, bracelets, necklaces, pendants and pins in 18k and 22k gold and sterling silver. From her studio in Lincoln, Nebraska, Sydney creates both her Designer Line and singular One Of A Kind pieces that include a variety of gemstones such as opal, aquamarine, tourmaline,diamonds, pearls, beryl, peridot and sapphire set in high karat gold and silver. I fell in love with jewelry when I was young, rummaging through my grandmother’s bureau drawers, enchanted by her treasure trove of costume jewelry that she kept in a jumble of tiny boxes, each with its own story. Since childhood I have accumulated and “curated” my collections of objects, found and acquired, assembling them in patterns and groupings that often inspire my jewelry designs. I think of these pebbles, shells, rusted metal fragments and art objects as an archive of personal memories. While working on the Navajo Reservation during college, I fell in love with the wide open western landscape and met my first silversmiths who inspired me to learn to make my own jewelry. I moved from Connecticut to Colorado, where I got my BFA at the University of Colorado, and decided if nothing else, a traditional career wasn’t for me. I eventually relocated to a farm in Nebraska, then to Lincoln, where I now live. I have an airy, sun-filled studio where I work with two bench assistants and my husband.

Cops turned entrepreneurs? When the local bakery and doughnut shop - founded in 1896 - was within weeks of closing, all 9 members of the local police department banded together to save the historic Clare City Bakery.
Dubbed “Cops and Doughnuts," since 2009 the 'owners' have added the Cop Shop, "Cops Coffee" and the Traffic Stop Diner and are now invited around the world to tour and talk at police promotional events.
Today people drive from all the surrounding states to enjoy the business's handmade confections of all types... l. www.CopsDoughnuts.com

Look around most stores and you will see a vast array of handbags and shoes. If you read the labels, it will also be clear that a large percentage of them are made of leather. Most people accept this unquestioningly because it has always been that way. Times are changing, however, and as awareness grows around the degree to which animals suffer for our food and fashion (among other things), vegan companies are responding.
Meet Jill Fraser, CEO and co-founder of Jill Milan, a company that makes vegan, luxury handbag. Each bag is made in Italy by artisans who have a heritage of crafting the best luxury accessories in the world. Every bag is a work of art, an individual creation designed for modern women. Bags are sewn by hand and the metalwork on Jill Milan's bags are handmade. Entirely free of leather, fur and other animal-derived materials, Jill Milan handbags and accessories are made from natural, luxurious materials such as velvets, ultrasuedes and buttery-soft faux leathers.
We will be talking with Jill about how and why she entered the vegan luxury fashion market with her beautiful handbags, why it is so important to choose accessories not made of animal-based materials as well as what it’s like to compete in this market that traditionally uses a lot of animal-derived materials? Her handbags are regularly worn by celebrities and this is not something we usually equate with vegan products (although clearly that is changing fast!). Learn firsthand how this benefits the vegan movement, how Jill Milan supports animals on many levels and why her products are making headlines.
Our guests are potters Jan Richardson and Robert Briscoe, well known in the artist community not only for their fine work but their generosity in developing opportunities for other artists.
Living in rural Maryland Jan developed the Valley Craft Network in 1982, a tour that continues to bring buyers from nearby Baltimore and Washington, DC, into the region to visit studios.
After a move to Washington State about six years ago she found few opportunities for selling her work and since then has worked within that community, creating art shows and the Peninsula Artists Studio Tour.
Robert Briscoe has been exhibiting his functional beautiful pottery at art festivals since 1970. In 1992 together with 7 of his friends they started the St. Croix Valley Pottery Studio Tour, which has become a national pottery phenomenon.
It started as a simple idea: bring together a group of potters to create an event that would be larger in scope than any individual's studio sale. In its' 22nd year it has grown to include 50 potters (43 of them invited from elsewhere).
The studios are within an hours' drive of Minneapolis. Collectors and pottery lovers come from all over N. America to enjoy the celebration and collect this fine handmade work.
Linda Minor, designer and owner of Bead Me. Linda designs handcrafted one of a kind metal gemstone jewelry. She is a a member of the North Carolina Society of Goldsmiths. She held buyer positions at several major department stores.
Linda's originally designed jewelry was a featured gift chosen to present to First Lady Michelle Obama and can be seen alongside bead supplies, women's accessories, art and other fine locally handmade gifts in her gallery. Her collection is available at the Harvey B Gantt Center and other specialty shops. Bring in your clothing and Linda will design the perfect earrings, bracelet or necklace to accent and complete you fashionable look.
She uses classic pearls, semi-precious gemstones, swarovski crystals, larimar, coral, turquoise, tourmaline, various beads and other materials to create classic designs with high fashion twist.
Linda recognizes that purchasing jewelry is a "want" and not a "need". Her priority is to provide you with what you want. Linda uses copper colored solder in her designs.
Environmentally, copper is one of the friendliest metals around. Copper never goes bad - it can be recycled over and over again. It actually has the highest recycling rate of any engineering metal in the world. Copper also functions as a defense against germs - because it is naturally biostatic, bacteria growth is inhibited on its surface. Many hospitals install copper or copper-alloy doorknobs, push panels and other hardware to protect against the transfer of disease.
