Many thanks to Karen Christians for responding about swaps at SNAG
Conferences! My name is Kristin Shiga, and I am SNAG’s Conference
Manager. Thought you all might like to know that for the 2006 SNAG
Conference in Chicago, we are “thinking outside the pin.”
This year SNAG’s traditional icebreaker social gathering will be a
Pendant Swap (cord will be provided), opening the conference on
the evening of Wednesday, May 24, 2006. Swap your pendants with other
conference-goers over hors d’oeuvres and drinks. Let your
imagination run wild! As Karen said, we recommend you make 10-75
inexpensive pendants to swap. The more you make, the more you can
swap, and anything (materials, format, etc.) goes! It’s a great way
to meet people and see some really inspiring work, to boot.
If you would like to find out more details about the 2006 SNAG
Conference, please visit the Current Conference pages of SNAG’s web
site at www.snagmetalsmith.org.
Hope to see you at the Pendant Swap in Chicago! Best, Kristin
