If you want to use it as a reference for your drawing, or print the image to hang up in your bedroom, that's perfectly fine. If sharing online, please link to the original in the description. As long as you don't take credit for making the original, I don't mind helping other artists and getting a little free advertising ^_^

Got my MA in metalsmithing and Jewelry form University of Iowa as well as my MFA, studying titanium and holography,  I taught metalsmithing and jewelry at U of Iowa and metalsmithing, sculpture and design at Iowa State.   How much more do you have to go be

Arienne,  are there any metal working (not jewelry) clubs or forums etc. here?  I am new (one week only)  and was hoping you could give me some guidance.  BTW have you seen the metalwork I did for Star Trek?  I worked for them ten years making metal wall sculptures for the ships for all three series.

Here's a group I joined many years ago (not aware of any others because it's been so long since I did any work). They're still alive and kicking after all this time though, so I'd imagine they're here to stay.

I have been artistically inactive on here for so many years that I'm not sure what's going on in the metal/jewelry scenes nowadays. The website has even gone through a lot of changes over that time, so the way groups communicate is a bit different now. I was a member by the old way they did things but, checking the page just now, it doesn't appear that I was grandfathered in. I still get notifications from them though.

I just now checked your Star Trek stuff and that's awesome!!! I was born and raised a Trekkie :D

Thank you for your positive response to my Star Trek stuff.  It was a great job and lasted for many years!

Oh my you have to miss it!  I use to think I couldn't live without my  torch.   I try not to miss it but it's not safe in an apartment besides almost everything I do is cold constructed.  Titanium can not be soldered so it all works out.  Congratulations on finding a good job!

And I'm only holding the torch because I'm trying to make props at the last second for a cyberpunk short film that I wrote. Got involved with indie films and haven't had much time to make props or anything else, lol

In fact, with the deadline I'm facing, I shouldn't even be on here. Leaving now lol

l love your work.  I think you will feel the same about my work.  I am a true metalsmith, trained in making holloware, flatware, large pieces, teapots and all the soldering and torch work that comes along with it so I can very much appreciate your work.
