Our guest on Metalsmith Benchtalk on Thursday, September 18th, 2014 at 3:00 PDT/ 6:00 EDT is Reba Engel, jewelry designer, metalsmith and former student of Jay Whaley!
We encourage you to participate in this live interview by logging into the chatroom or sending a message to Whaley Studio's Facebook Page.
About Reba: “Little did I know that my first jewelry project as a child, assembling broken pieces of my mother’s costume jewelry from a shoebox, would inspire a career! A high school class taught me the fundamentals of fabricating jewelry and I was hooked."
This passion for jewelry led to my first bold collection in 1999 — clearly an expression of my Bachelors in Applied Arts and a career in architectural design. These engineered pieces were cut out by my computer drawings and a water-jet system; a nontraditional metalsmithing process suggested to me by my college jewelry professor, Arline Fisch. As I construct the cast originals, I modify the technological feeling of the forms with hand applied finishes.
Over the years, my work has remained modern yet it has evolved with more fabricated designs and custom cut gemstones. My first job introduced me to the fashion industry where I spent several years and influenced my love for textiles, sewing, embroidery and hand painting fabric. From that inspiration, I developed a needlework series where I crochet chain and weave precious beads onto chain to drape like fabric as well as etch patterns onto metal in relief.

Michelle Endersby - Awakening Around Roses
Growing up in Montmorency in the natural bushland beauty of the Eltham Shire where art and the environment were interconnected, Michelle developed at an early age a sense of wonder in the natural world and it is this that she wants to share through my art. She see's personality in individual plants and flowers which sometimes makes my florals or nature studies seem more like portraits than traditional florals.

A lifelong interest and involvement with textiles drives her to explore the textural properties of her subjects be that the velvety petal of a rose or the meandering root systems of ancient Moreton Bay Fig Trees.

I found myself in a beautiful, light-filled rose garden and this vision hastened my recovery and illuminated my path forward. This incident has made me see the world through different eyes. I see beauty surrounding me and I want to share my vision with the world."

Carolyn Bendall, Fashion Critic and blogger (www.carolynbendall.com), discusses subjects, trends, or products within the beauty and fashion industry, focusing on Your True Colours, and how it applies to you, the individual.
Allison Fagundes is the founder of BusteeLady, which makes fashionable and supportive clothing for busty women. Fashion is Allison’s calling. Attending FIDM and LMU helped land her careers in apparel manufacturing and costume design. As she developed the brand concept, a particularly humiliating, but now funny moment, catapulted Bustees into reality. Bustees promotes health and wellness and supports 2 causes, one of which Allison directly encountered, breast and thyroid cancer.
Bustees designs bikinis with fit, fashion, as well as performance in mind. We want our clients to be beachside, or poolside, and only be focused on enjoying themselves as well as reveling in the fact they look fabulous! If a customer wearing our product goes to the beach and decides she wants to be a part of a pick-up game of volleyball, she will be left without a doubt knowing her curves are secure, properly supported, and she won’t have to worry about anything “popping out to say hello” no matter how active her day becomes. Bustees bikinis mimic the support of a brassiere, while maintaining better dimensional stability through the layering of performance textiles. In fusing these two ideas, you end up with an impressive product that will last.
Jews played a significant role in the slave trade in the United States. The Nation of Islam uncovered documents showing Jews built massive cotton marketing businesses, owning thousands of acres of plantations. Indeed, much of the slave-picked cotton produced in the Mississippi Delta region was marketed internationally by Jewish merchants. Indisputably, Blacks picked the cotton. Jews simultaneously established their dominance in the needle trades or textiles industry, the banking industry, as well as a significant—even if little known—role in the formation of labor unions, which allowed them to exercise control over jobs and contracts.
As a matter of fact, two great books detailing the Jewish involvement in slavery in the U.S., was written and published by the Nation of Islam, under the leadership of the Great Minister Louis Farrakhan. Per the FinalCall.com "Published in 1991, The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, Volume One, set off ideological tremors resulting in denunciations, and chaotic scrambles into the archives of Jewish historical literature by those hoping to debunk its claims. They were unsuccessful, and quietly, the assertions that Jews were merely co-sufferers or innocent bystanders in the trans-Atlantic slave trade have been silenced. The Nation of Islam's Historical Research Department has followed up with the highly anticipated Volume 2 in a series of scholarly volumes, this one under the subtitle How Jews Gained Control of the Black American Economy."

Drawing on 400 years of newspaper articles and photos, first person accounts, state historical records, and illustrated field reports, Richard J. Dewhurst reveals not only that North America was once ruled by an advanced race of giants but also that the Smithsonian has been actively suppressing the physical evidence for nearly 150 years. He shows how thousands of giant skeletons have been unearthed at Mound Builder sites across the continent, only to disappear from the historical record. He examines other concealed giant discoveries, such as the giant mummies found in Spirit Cave, Nevada, wrapped in fine textiles and dating to 8000 BCE; the hundreds of red-haired bog mummies found at sinkhole “cenotes” on the west coast of Florida and dating to 7500 BCE; and the ruins of the giants’ cities with populations in excess of 100,000 in Arizona, Oklahoma, Alabama, and Louisiana.
Dewhurst shows how this suppression began shortly after the Civil War and transformed into an outright cover-up in 1879 when Major John Wesley Powell was appointed Smithsonian director, launching a strict pro-evolution, pro-Manifest Destiny agenda. He also reveals the 1920s’ discovery on Catalina Island of a megalithic burial complex with 6,000 years of continuous burials and over 4,000 skeletons, including a succession of kings and queens, some more than 9 feet tall--the evidence for which is hidden in the restricted-access evidence rooms at the Smithsonian.
Richard J. Dewhurst is the Emmy Award-winning writer of the HBO feature documentary Dear America: Letters Home from Vietnam. A graduate of NYU with degrees in journalism, film, and television, he has written and edited for the History Channel, the Arts & Entertainment Channel, PBS, Fox Television and Fox Films, ABC News, TNT, Paramount Pictures, and the Miami Herald. He lives in Vermont.
