Participate by joining us in the chatroom!
Cat spent his early childhood, and summers through grade school, on Monhegan Island off of the Maine coast. He remains strongly influenced by the island's nautical history, rugged landscape, and the resourcefulness and hard work that one needs to live there year-round.
He began studying metalsmithing 14 years ago. He started working as a professional jeweler in 2004, and graduated from Maine College of Art in 2009 with a BFA in Metalsmithing and Jewelry Design. He have received scholarships to study at Penland School of Crafts, Peters Valley, and Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, and has tught workshops on basic metalsmithing, sand casting, and decorative sailor knotting. In 2012 he produced his first line of production jewelry, under the title Barbarian Enterprises.
He employs a variety of techniques in the design and manufacture of his work, from sand casting to sailor knotting, 3-d modeling to forging.He utilizes the skills of other professionals when economically and/or conceptually appropriate, and in these instances give credit in the product description.He believes that the method used to produce a piece of jewelry (or any object) resonates within it, even if it is not obvious to a casual observer.

Our guest on Metalsmith Benchtalk on Thursday, November 20th, 2014 at 3:00 PST/ 6:00 EST is jewelry artist Noël Yovovich, a 2013 Saul Bell Award Finalist.Please join us for this live broadcast and participate by logging into the chatroom or by sending a message to the Whaley Studio’s Facebook Page.
About: Noel Yovovich lives and works in Evanston, Illinois, but draws much of her inspiration from her childhood in rural Florida. The locale was popular as an over-winter and retirement spot for traveling circus and carney performers. This colorful beginning was followed by study culminating in a B.A. in Fine Arts from the University of Chicago, and the professional pursuit of art ever since. Landscapes and intimate still-lives predominate in intricate jewelry, much of which uses carefully-controlled anodization of titanium, combined with sterling silver, plus gold, copper, and/or stones, to produce works with surprising detail and illusion of depth. Noël Yovovich has taught teens and adults for many years at the Evanston Art Center as well as the Bead & Button Show, BeadFests, and schools around the country. President of the Chicago Metal Arts Guild, contributing editor of Art Jewelry Magazine and Lapidary Journal/ Jewelry Artist Magazine.
