As a jewelry maker myself, I just want to share an interesting anecdote.
The first gallery that picked me up was one that had a focus on "fine
art" with a great exhibit of paintings and sculpture. They wanted a
counterpoint to that, and my work fit the bill. I was very successful
with that gallery. Then...... the administration of the area the
gallery rents from pointed out that they were "a fine art gallery" and
could not sell jewelry. So.. I ended up being dropped... even though I
consider my work painting in unground pigment ...
