Guild of Emerging Metalsmiths
GEM is a student-run organization operating out of Winthrop University's Jewelry/Metalsmithing department. We are dedicated to providing students who are interested in metalsmithing with support, as well as opportunities to participate in workshops, member-run sales, and events for professional and artistic development. Every year, we host a series of workshops where professional artists come in to share their craft, and we are always looking for member input for who to invite and what to learn.
