Connie Fox is a truly extraordinary metalsmith, jewelry designer and teacher. Her work has been prominently featured in these pages. Below is one of my favorites, her Wide Bangle with Spinners. Connie teaches virtually every aspect of metalsmithing in her state-of-the-art San Diego studio.
Connie recently interviewed me for an article in Step by Step Wire Jewelry.
The issue just came out this month. It’s on newsstands now. The interview/article focused on tips for improving artists’ photos of their work. Connie noted in the intro that one of the simple photo tips (Don’t mix light!) improved the quality of her images immediately. Parenthetically, the article featured a shot of Jonna Faulkner’s Bird Toggle Bracelet, constructed from wire, fine silver and pearls.
