Recent projects include a daily ring project; in 2010 she made 365 rings as an experiment in recycled, alternative and repurposed materials. Starting Jan 1st and ending Dec 31st she experimented with materials such as elastic bands from around morning newspapers and produce to twist ties to recycled straws.

Related to this project, Colleen curated her first exhibition, ‘Ring a Day’ at Punch Gallery in Seattle which was part of the SNAG (Society of North American Goldsmiths) annual conference. The exhibition featured 365 rings by 65 international artists and was juried from 17,000 photos.

A modern metalsmith/metal artist can be found working in traditional metals as well as in nontraditional materials. The designs can range from the classic to the extravagant, and the techniques can either be centuries old or decidedly current.

The wide range of expression preferences, design options, materials, and processes has lead within our field to unfavorable misconceptions, misunderstandings and in some cases even outright disdain between artists. Can the metal and jewelry field overcome its division and send out a much-needed signal?

We appreciate and respect our historical past and acknowledge that current materials have a rightful place in jewelry/object making!
