I'm a jeweler working primarily in glass and gold. I got my BFA from Rhode Island School of Design in1982 and have been a full time studio artist since then. I've served a term as President of the Society of North American Goldsmiths (SNAG) and also as chair of the Metalsmith magazine Editorial Advisory Committee. My jewelry is in the permanent collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, the Corning Museum of Glass, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston and others.

Thanks! I appreciate that. Yes, I did go to undergrad at BG. I'm going to grad school now at Indiana University, Bloomington and am getting ready to mount my thesis show at the end of April. That's really nice of Charon.
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!
