Geography: An exhibition of contemporary jewelry presented at the 2011 Seattle SNAG Conference 
organized by Art Jewelry Forum.

The science of geography seeks to provide a unified view of the natural world
(physical geography) and the relationship between humans and the landscape
(cultural geography).Taking geography as its theme, this exhibition, curated by
Susan Cummins and Mike Holmes and organized by the Art Jewelry Forum,
demonstrates the global nature of the contemporary jewelry field and the diverse
ways that jewelers react to their environment. The exhibition is a celebration of the
amazing variety of the natural world and humanity’s part in it, and a demonstration
of the unusual ability that jewelry has to identify culture and place in a rapidly changing
and increasingly interconnected world. This is Geography.

Seattle… This city gives me memories of being there in 2005. I lived there
about 1 year in 2005.
Someday, I would love to visit Seattle again.. (There are so many places I want
to visit!)


Anyway, I am very happy that I could have a show with great jewelers.
Thanks, Heidi.
