Ryan Gosling Loves Canadian Jewellery. Ryan Gosling Loves You.

Seems like forever ago that people started talking about the SNAG conference coming to Toronto.

The last time SNAG rolled into town, WHAM!, Starship, Chaka Khan, A-Ha, and Madonna ruled the charts.  My best piece of jewellery at the time was likely my round Madonna button....the one with her lacy, mesh black fingerless gloves...oh yes, it was 1985.

The Society of North American Goldsmiths (SNAG) hasn't held a conference in Canada in a while....and Toronto is welcoming all with an expansive array of events, parties, exhibitions and lectures as part of the festivities.  From the Toronto International Jewellery Festival website:

"The SNAG annual three-day conference attracts up to 1000 makers, educators, students, gallery owners, curators and collectors in jewellery, design and metalsmithing from across North America and beyond. SNAG brings together artists of all levels of experience and across all disciplines to create a passionate and provocative atmosphere for spirited discussion and the exchange of ideas."

To coincide, the launch of a new website, and an online exhibition are currently online.

Thoughtfully curated by colleague, Paul Mc Clure of Toronto, and jewellery gallery owner and supporter, Noel Guyomarc'h of Montreal, this beautiful online exhibition features contemporary Canadian jewellery artists from coast to coast.

Leading up to the Toronto International Jewellery festival, happening this Spring, it will coincide with the Snag conference to celebrate all things jewellery in the city.

I was happy to be a part of the online exhibition and hope that some of you can make it to some of the exhibitions and events that will be happening in the city.

Here's the link.

Oh, and Ryan....

This site is pretty fun I made one to celebrate the Toronto International Jewellery
Festival.  If you make one, drop me a note and let me know!
