COD Jewelry & Metals Guild
The COD Jewelry & Metals Guild is a group of like-­‐minded students/community artists sharing the experiences of making jewelry and metalwork. It's members are given the opportunity to meet new people who may have more experiences then they have and therefore become stronger in their own artistic skills. Members can meet through organized meetings and social media. Currently, we have a group sale twice a year, workshops, visiting artists, and other related activities. The group is a friendly and diverse group of people who are interested in having fun while making.
