Created by studio
jeweler Susan Sarantos in 1999 Metalcyberspace
is a labor of love.
My intention is a one stop information site for research about
contemporary jewelry designers, art jewelry, statement jewellery,
metal artists and the metalsmithing field. After years
of networking people together
from different groups in the past, I realized once I got online
that the internet was the perfect venue for what I had always
I have an archive in my studio of over 500 binders (and growing)
with information on anything jewelry related which I have collected
over the past twenty years. Books, magazines and catalogues
also take up a huge section of my space. My file collection
is sorted into categories which is the basis for this web structure.
I've been inspired by many people and would like to mention a
Lee Morris - ran ARTWEAR Gallery in New York for many
years. Every time I went to New York I had to visit his gallery!
His work is amazing. I contacted him while I was in Paris
1988 but he was busy preparing
for a show in Basel at the time so we missed visiting in person.
Phillip Fike - Inspired
as well as entertained with stories at every SNAG conference.
Good - He was one of the first American metalsmiths published
in Aurum Magazine.
His technical article on anticlastic raising was included and
the issue quickly sold out.
Metalcyberspace is a work in progress.
I'm always looking for information
about artists, metalsmithing and places of interest so if I'm
missing any of your favorites please email and I'll add them.
Currently learning new programs so that I can incorporate all
my ideas into the website.
I plan on adding virtual exhibitions and much more.
Metamorphosing every day.
Enjoy the site,
