Shaker Heights Updates

I look forward to the Shaker Heights show each year. If I get in that is, as it is a juried show and jewelry is the most competitive category of all.

When I did this show the first couple of years it was on the sprawling, grassy lawn of a girl’s school. It has moved.

Show location is the parking lot on the north side of Farnsleigh Road. It is between the Shaker Heights country club and the Van Aken Shopping Center. A GPS address is 20233 Van Aken Blvd, Shaker Heights, OH, 44122-3619.

I’m so sorry this info is absolutely last minute. I will try harder to post info as soon as I get it.


Metalsmithing Poodle

This blog has morphed into an observation and reflection of life as an artist. I am a Denver based metalsmith who works in a call center by day, sells jewelry by night, and fills the rest of the waking hours practicing parkour. I am the founder of Purple Poodle Designs and I am the events coordinator for the Colorado Metalsmithing Association.
