classic and timely

PUBLISHED IN APRIL, 1947, Raymond Addison’s “Cameo and Intaglio Carving” appeared as the cover story of Volume 1, Number 1, of Lapidary Journal. Recently, I was contacted by Addison’s great-niece, who was compiling a family genealogy. She was seeking information about more that Lapidary Journal had published by or about her great-uncle, and I helped her as best I could. In return, she kindly sent me a copy of the finished genealogy, which just arrived and sent me back to the gentleman’s inspiring tale. Here are some highlights, as timely as ever. HOW HE STARTED: • Boyhood examining rocks and gravel pits in central Michigan, shapes a few stones• Studies art, later (per his great-niece) becomes an instrument maker at the forerunner of NASA• As an engraver and stonesetter, sees the occasional…

power + precision

NORTHERN CALIFORNIA JEWELRY ARTIST Lynda Bahr spent 15 years in commercial interior design working with large architectural firms in San Francisco. Intrigued by the work of local jewelry artists, when she and her husband moved to the countryside, she decided to try jewelry work herself. She found the work suits her perfectly. The small scale gives her complete artistic control from design to finish. Bahr uses square wire and sheet to provide the architectural structure she appreciates, then skillfully integrates the natural, organic patterns she sees around her every day through the use of nubby textures, gemstone choice, and mokumé gané. “A major amount of my work is soldering,” says Bahr, which makes a good torch indispensable to her. Bahr uses the MECO Midget Torch combined with a selection of Paige torch…

a site of your own — for under $500

I’VE WRITTEN BEFORE about the importance of having a website of your own as a designer/artist who wants to market your work. A professionally designed ecommerce site can cost $5,000 to $10,000. But I’m guessing most of you aren’t interested in running a big retail business.

You don’t need to spend thousands of dollars for a site like that. You can get professional presentation with just enough customization for a couple hundred dollars if you’re willing to build it yourself. For a few hundred more, you can hire someone to customize it for you. And, for a few hundred…

view from the bridge

THERE IS A FUNNY EXPRESSION most of us can relate to: beads were the “gateway drug” to a life-long jewelry-making habit. I can still be seduced by heaps of shimmering glass or stone beads now and then, and you probably can be, too. It’s the interesting shapes, colors, and textures that appeal to me, and of course, the play of light. I love cutting gemstones and soldering silver, but I’ll be the first to admit that my head can be turned by the occasional fascinating strand of beads. Beads can bring back fond memories of how I got started in this craft and those early days before I crossed the bridge into metalsmithing. Bead-centric Beauties The folks at Beadalon cater to the most discriminating of beaders. I am astounded at the innovative…
