SNAG is pleased to announce its 2021 conference Inspire/Aspire: A Virtual Convening.
June 24th-27th, 2021
Early-Bird tickets will be available starting May 3rd
2020 marked a significant and difficult chapter in the organization’s history. But out of those challenges new perspectives and opportunities have risen. As the world begins to turn the corner on the devastation of the COVID-19 pandemic, SNAG is confident and eager to mark the 50th anniversary of SNAG’s first conference in 1970 with its first virtual conference.
Although the conference will look different this year, SNAG is enthused by what a virtual platform has to offer around broadening the access, inclusivity and diversity of our community. It will include variations on many favorite programs:
The 2019 Juried Student Exhibition highlighted student work that challenges traditional and non-traditional ways of working using new and old materials, techniques, and ideas by the next generation of makers in the metalsmithing and jewelry field. The exhibition was held in May during the SNAG conference in Chicago.
Congratulations to the winners:
Best in Show
Cathryn Jasterzbski, Filling a Void & Steel Series Necklace

Alejandra Salinas, Border Choker
SNAG would like to take this opportunity to recognize our Corporate Members for their support: Clara Williams, Gemological Institute of America, Halstead, and Steven Jacob, Inc.
The Exhibition in Motion (EiM) is a runway-type live exhibition event that will take place at SNAG’s next conference, “Grit to Gold: Future Fifty,” in Philadelphia, PA, May 20-23, 2020.
Call for Entries
SNAG’s 2020 Exhibition in Motion committee is seeking proposals that reflect how you see the future. What is important to you as we move into the future? What do you see as the future of SNAG, of the field, our environment, and our world? As always you must GO BIG! Consideration will be given to works that incorporate topics of inclusion and sustainability. Collaborations, class projects and international applications are encouraged. Future Now is open to all from the beginner to professional. We want you all!
All works will be presented on live models and must consider scale (think feet not inches) and wearability for all body types. The EiM is open to submissions of all kinds from finished pieces to sketched proposals. We want to show just how diverse we all are!! Deadline: October 28, 2019.
