We actually did visit that exhibit on torture devices. Its a traveling exhibition and a real minder-binder.

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!
