The 2017 Halstead Design Challenge “Memento” asked artists to incorporate a photo into a brooch constructed primarily from materials in the Halstead challenge kit. Only 200 challenge kits were available. A juried selection from all entries was exhibited at the SNAG New Orleans Conference in May 2017. Congratulations to the winners and thanks to everyone who participated!
1st Place: Jim Bové, Mnemosyne at the Waters of Lethe
2nd Place: Thomas Mann, Nude with Wings
3rd Place: Kelly Jean Conroy, Elipse
Runners-up: Renee Zettle-Sterling, Xinhao Yang, Jill Tower
New online exhibition!
As the third juried member exhibition in the We Are SNAG series, (Up)Setting the Stone is an online exhibition focused on the setting. Stone setting has been utilized in some of the earliest known jewelry. There are thousands of variations based on a few different techniques. Juried by George Sawyer and Laura Wood, this collection of work expands to jewelry, objects, vessels, and sculpture.
The SNAG Links Project was originally conceived of and coordinated by Linda Kaye-Moses in the 1990s. Linda invited 12 artists to create a link (a pendant-like adornment) utilizing their unique skill-sets.
Victoria Lansford revived the project in 2015/2016. Some of the links are available for purchase through our newest online exhibition. A portion of the proceeds benefit SNAG.
Each artist also contributed a chapter to the ebooks Linking Our Lineage, also available for purchase. Proceeds benefit SNAG.
Make it Shake, Rattle & Spin! This call-for-action was made to 100 lucky recipients of the 2016 Halstead Design Challenge kits. Each kit contained 50 components. Artists were asked to create a kinetic brooch using the supplies and a found object.
Select brooches were featured in an exhibition during SNAGneXt in May 2016. Some of the brooches are available for purchase in a new online exhibition. A portion of the proceeds goes to SNAG.

Call for Entries
Deadline extended to September 30, 2016
As the third juried member exhibition in the We Are SNAG series, (Up)Setting the Stone is an exhibition looking for your interpretation of settings. Stonesetting has been utilized in some of the earliest known jewelry. There are thousands of variations based on a few different techniques. Whether used traditionally with gemstones, applied to new materials, or even explored as a concept, this exhibition focuses on the setting. Submissions such as jewelry, objects, vessels, sculpture, and architecture will be considered, but are not limited to these categories.
Juried by George Sawyer and Laura Wood, only images of works completed by current SNAG members will be evaluated.
