Pin Swap and SNAG

I had the opportunity to attend and volunteer at SNAG (Society of North American Goldsmiths) Conference in New Orleans. It was an amazing and inspiring time. My heart is overflowing with inspiration and reconnecting with an amazing community of makers.

The first evening networking event is the Pin Swap. Everyone makes a little something amazing, then swaps and talks through the room. It's choas of ideas and exchanges in the best ways.
