Max Nixon inspired me to become a metalsmith and a jewelry artist. That was back in 1992 when he was artist-in-residence at the University of Oregon’s Craft Center. Today, eighteen years after his death, we are finally paying homage to him as a teacher, colleague, and friend, in the exhibit “Max Nixon Legacy Metalwork” at White Lotus Gallery, 767 Willamette Street, in Eugene, Oregon. The show opens tomorrow, Saturday, October 27, 2018.
At the time of his death, Max’s “legacy metalwork” — pieces he held on to representing many years of creativity in a variety of materials and techniques, and those he made for his beloved wife Hattie Mae — are on display and being offered for purchase. The exhibit runs until November 27, 2018. See the illustrated catalog at Blurb.com. Print copies are available at the gallery.
Thank you, Max Nixon, for your inspiration, power of persuasion, and boundless patience!

Join us on Saturday, December 2, 2017, at White Lotus Gallery in Eugene for the Winter 2017 Open House. My latest jewelry creations and inspirations will be there as we gather for some holiday cheer.
Another event, Small Business Saturday, will be happening at Cozy, Eugene’s newest yarn emporium across from the 5th Street Public Market, on Saturday, November 25. My Re~Wear pins will be featured. These are fiber fasteners or embellishments made from old knitting needles and various beads, yarns, fabrics, and bling. They are perfect for securing a shawl or scarf or to add some pizzazz to a lapel or hat. They are ideal stocking stuffers for all crafters and fiber artists.
Did you know that I regularly publish an ad for clsjewelry – Christine L. Sundt Fine Jewelry Design in Eugene Magazine? It’s a great “lifestyle” magazine for our area and it’s helped me showcase my work especially to visitors. You can find a copy of Eugene Magazine in just about every local hotel — and in most waiting rooms.
The next issue will be Summer 2017. Here’s a preview of my new ad:
After several years, anything gets old. So, too, my former website.
Today I launched a new design for clsjewelry.com, which promises to be a better experience for viewers who prefer to surf the Web with smaller, handheld devices. But I’ll know I’ve been successful only if I hear from you!
