Showcases works that reveal innovative approaches to how jewelry and metal objects are conceived, made, and displayed. For this issue, the emphasis is on location or place as subject or actual space for the creation and display of work. You will see works that expand and explore the “where” of contemporary metalsmithing: where shown or sold; where is it worn or used; where does it have environmental impact; where is work made. As a subject for metalsmithing, “site” can be understood as geography, landscape or cityscape and be revealed in imagery or forms that reference natural settings, architecture, urban or rural spaces.
