The other artists include Mary Lee Hu, currently working out of her Seattle-based studio; Marilyn da Silva, professor and chair of the jewelry/metals arts program at the California College of the Arts in Oakland, and Lynda Watson, whose jewelry can be found in the permanent collections of New York City’s Museum of Arts and Design and the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C.
