Emeritus Professor Paulette Myers, Head of Jewelry and Metalsmithing, received her MFA degree from Washington University in St. Louis, MO, and has exhibited and presented her research to metalsmithing conventions both nationally and internationally. She avidly continues research in reticulation and perforation. This latter research is included in the book entitled Metalsmithing Papers, a collection of ten original research papers organized by the Society of North American Goldsmiths. Professor Myers has also organized major artistic endeavors in St. Louis including the 1992 Korean/American Symposium and Exhibitions consisting of Metals and Fiber/Arts. This event alone brought in fourteen Korean and American speakers and four workshops. She also co-chaired the 1999 Society of North American Goldsmiths' Convention, arranging a number of national and international exhibits, and hosted conference workshops at the SIUE Metals Department for the event. Professor Myers gives workshops nationally, such as the 2001 Silverworks Ill, where she specifically demonstrated reticulation of large scale hollowware and forming for the Society of American Silversmiths.
