SORT BY Relevancy
How long is too long -- or not long enough -- when it comes to a soap character mourning their beloved partner, ala GENERAL HOSPITAL's Patrick and Sam? How important is it for a character's morality to either track or, at the very least, make sense (ala Brady finding God on DAYS OF OUR LIVES)? And how do you move a great character past a horrific mistake made by a writing regime (ala THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS' Adam kidnapping Sharon's baby or DAYS' Sami shooting EJ in the head?) This will be our kicking off point tonight as host Richard M. Simms, executive editor of Soaps In Depth magazine, takes your calls on these and other topics. Rememer, as always, where the conversation goes is up to you! Got something you want to contribute or an entirely different topic you'd like to discuss? Call in!

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.
