It is with a heavy heart that we share the news of Sharon Church’s passing on December 25th, 2022.
Because Sharon has touched the lives of so many people it feels impossible that a single one of us could capture her impact and legacy through Metalsmith‘s usual “In Memoriam” article format. Therefore, SNAG is inviting folks to share short remembrances which we can run in the magazine and here online.
We hope to collect text, images, and anything else you wish to share by January 9th. Please send your emails to firstname.lastname@example.org with “In Memoriam: Sharon Church” in the subject line.
In the meantime, you can read more about Sharon’s impact on SNAG and the field of jewelry in her 2018 SNAG Lifetime Achievement Award article.
