Little Things Mean a Lot

Although tiny, rings and pins and broaches are some of our favorite (and most valuable) possessions, and jewelers make them that way using some surprising methods. One of those practiced in colonial America was sand casting, and in our December 2020 issue Jeffery Jobe, a historic jeweler and researcher often selected for the Directory of Traditional American Crafts, show step-by-step how a skilled artisan might make a favorite bangle or bijou.

Directory Deadline Extended

Out here in the Ohio wilderness, mail delivery has become chancy as the Pandemic slows the postal system.

To allow for the vaguaries of the current clog of paper mail, we have extended the deadline for artists wanting to apply for the 2021 Directory of Traditional American Crafts by one month.

Security Warning!

Check your credit-card bill. Hackers have spoofed our account and placed small charges in our name against a number of credit cards. If you find a charge attributed to us that you did not make, notify your credit card company of an unauthorized charge (you should not have to pay for it). But more importantly, immediately change your credit card number or cancel your account. Such a charge means that your credit card number has been stolen! Change it before your number is used for expensive purchases.  [MORE]

An Apology and Update

We want to apologize for any problems you may have had with this website in early September. An ill-starred update by our web host caused parts of this site to malfunction. As a result, subscription attempts resulted in errors. Our host has rectified the problem.

For the safety of our staff (who have thus far eluded the Corona virus), we have been working remotely, leaving our office untended. However, we will staff our office on Tuesday and Friday mornings from 9AM to Noon, Eastern Time, to take your calls at 440-543-8566. If you need human assistance, please call us then. Otherwise, email is the quickest way to get into contact with us.  [MORE]
