Online Store Closed While We Are On The Road

So sorry, but we have packed up and taken all of our jewelry with us on the road to a couple of shows and thus had to close down the online store for a while.  We will be back and online again in early November.

If you have an urgent need for jewelry that just cannot wait (we understand!) please email us at info (at) judithaltman (dot) com or call 336-209-7277 and we will do our best to help!

All Creative Work is Derivative

By using photographs of archeological artifacts from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, this video makes the point that all creative acts are done in the context of society, other ideas and all that came before.  We might enjoy the idea that we are uniquely creative, coming up with entirely new ideas, but in reality we are the result of our life experiences and our exposure to the creative product of all of society.  Our work extends that which came before and provides influence on others around us and in the future.  That is enough for me!

Look at this gorgeous table

This wonderful table is from P. Chrisley International and features the hardware that I designed for them.  So exciting to see it come to fruition.  Check them out by clicking here.
