Our Story

The Jewelry Student Co-op is an organization run by the graduate students in the Jewelry + Metalwork program at San Diego State University. The Jewelry Student Co-op aims to raise funds to support our prestigious visiting artist program. With the help of these donations, we will continue to invite artists in our field to give lectures, workshops, and critiques to SDSU Jewelry + Metalwork students. Past visiting artists have included: Jorge Manilla, Lisa Walker, Ruudt Peters, Lucy Sarneel and Helen Britton. The opportunity to engage and connect with respected artists and art historians gives the graduate students a chance to gain an outside perspective in the international jewelry field. These valuable and influential interactions help shape the educational career of SDSU students.
