T. M. Originals creates distinctive wearable art and hilariously awesome prints!
I create a variety of jewelry items with materials that include: recycled watch, computer, and electronics parts, copper, brass, nickel silver, sterling silver, and powdered glass enamel that is fused to the metal in a kiln. Everything on my table are my designs and handmade. Additionally, I now do collograph and linoleum printmaking. My prints are created from my own designs and hand printed.
I have taken metalsmithing classes at North Seattle College, Danaca Design, and Tacoma Metal Arts.
I won the Best Jewelry Award at Norwescon in both 2010 & 2011.
I have two pictures of my pieces in 1000 Steampunk Creations.
I have one item in the book Showcase 500 Beaded Jewelry (though I’m not really doing much beadwork on my table at this point except for the occasional statement piece).
I was invited to apply to the Metalmorphosis show at the Bellevue Arts Museum in 2016.
I have participated in the Seattle Metals Guild display at the Washington Convention Center in 2016 and 2018.
I have had items in the Seattle Recycled Arts show in 2018 and 2019.
Shows where I have sold my work include but are not limited to: Best of the Northwest, Art in the Park in Waterland, Shoreline Arts Festival, Alki Arts Festival, West Seattle Summer Festival, Kirkland Arts Festival, Worldcon in both Spokane and San Jose, Gallifrey One, Capricon, Arisia, Emerald City Comic Con, Crypticon, Phinney Winter Festival, and GeekCraft Expo.
