“Link by Link” is an exhibition featuring the work of five regional jewelers who are also educators. Each was asked to select a past student to show work alongside them, to illustrate the handing down of skills and tradition in the field of jewelry and metals arts. “Link by Link” also partners again two Puget Sound art organizations, Tacoma Metal Arts Center and Seattle’s Pratt Fine Arts Center.

Rebbecca Tomas, jewelry/metals manager at Pratt, said, “TMAC proprietor Amy Reeves and I have a long history of working together to promote jewelry and metal arts, and our joint goal for this exhibition is to highlight the work of our highly skilled teachers and their students as well as the vital importance of these studio relationships in nurturing the next generation of practitioners.”
