Not to be funny or anything, but I think I may need to consider this silver chin armor for all us feather weight wrestlers out there. Best thing I've heard all week! I thank your subconscious metalsmither.
The students that applied are the best that I have! They're great. They have been selective regarding their choices and really want to work with you and Lisa. I don't believe in accepting my former undergraduates graduates into my MFA program. If I did, I would not hesitate to accept these students.

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!
