This weekend I went to SNAG’s Forging Entrepreneurs Conference in San Fransisco.  SNAG is a metalsmithing group and stands for Society of North American Goldsmiths.  This conference had some really great speakers which included:

Ben Allen, Labrador Agency
Cindy Edelstein, Jewelers’ Resource Bureau
Sarah Graham, Sarah Graham Metalsmithing
Alissia Melka-Teichroew, ByAMT
George Post, George Post Photography 
Jonathan Russell, JR Casting

The conference was held at The Academy of Art University.  It is nestled into the heart of San Fransisco. This school actually is in its first year of a brand new Jewelery and Metalwork program.  I would have liked to be able to take a tour of the new programs studios, but I didn’t get a chance.  Maybe next visit!

After the conference we got to go hang out in a penthouse and got a fabulous view of the city!  I got to meet and talk to some great metalsmiths.  All in all it was a really great time!
