The Metal Arts Guild (MAG) is an independent, non-profit, educational organization
of people who are skilled, interested, or share in the production and exhibition of metals.

Our Community


Everyone is welcome to join: from the beginner to the master craftsperson, teachers and students, metal arts collectors and more. Each member is a vital part of making the Guild work for our community.


We support the work of outstanding metal artists by organizing exhibitions, lectures, and workshops, awarding an annual MAG Community Project Grant, various student scholarships, and offering resources and opportunities for our members.


MAG is a 501(c 3) non-profit, all-volunteer-led arts organization, and we rely on your generosity to help us provide metal related events, lectures, workshops, exhibitions and networking mixers to the membership and community.

Tell us a little about yourself.

I’m a jewelry artist that creates colorful, bold jewelry from LEGO® – both fashion ready-to-wear as well as larger, one-of-a-kind conceptual work. I’m a small business owner of two businesses, emiko-o reware (jewelry wholesale/retail) since 1998 and emikooyoga since 2017. 

When I’m not in the jewelry studio, I’m teaching Restorative Yoga and the MELT Method® at yoga studios around the Bay Area. Jewelry making is hard on the body and I find that this balance of both art and mindful movement keeps me sane and my body healthy and out of pain.

I’m obsessed with corgis, although we don’t own one….yet.
