The SNAG Links Project was originally conceived of and coordinated by Linda Kaye-Moses from 1996-2001.
 In this project, Linda invited 12 artists to create a link (a pendant-like adornment) utilizing their unique skill-sets. The pieces were documented, then donated to the annual conference silent auction.

Victoria Lansford revived the project from 2015-2017, with the links displayed annually at the SNAG conference. In keeping with Linda’s concept, each year Victoria invited artists to create links. Each link was for sale individually at the SNAG conference. All of the 2015-2017 links were also featured in online exhibitions.

The artists have also contributed to the Linking Our Lineage books, in keeping with SNAG’s commitment to preserve and disseminate knowledge within our community.
