Press Releases GSI Offers Free Jewelry Design Workshops Published 3 years ago on May 9, 2018 By INSTORE Staff Share Tweet A workshop will be held May 19. (Press Release) MUMBAI – Gemological Science International is hosting a series of free two-hour jewelry design workshops from January through May. Available to entrepreneurs, beginners and students through to advanced professionals, the courses teach practical techniques for jewelry design, including drafting, shading, design theory and how to illustrate shapes and forms using several mediums. GSI’s head of education, Raja Gondkar (also a 30-year industry veteran), said, “Our workshops introduce those interested in a possible career in jewelry design to the basic skills of this great art form in an easy and interesting manner. We hope students leave with the encouragement and confidence to use proper form when designing their own piece of jewelry.” The first workshop, held on Jan. 23, was focused on free-hand jewelry design and helped students think out of the box as well as take inspiration from various forms. Through freehand sketching, students were able to visualize their creative ideas and modify them quickly and confidently via different stencils and tools. Rohit Lahoti, a student attendee, said, “Today’s course was an especially enriching experience where I was able to work at my own pace without feeling the pressure of being in a typical, formal classroom environment. The staff was helpful and I am excited about coming to future sessions.” The third session on Saturday, Feb. 17, also featured a career talk with award-winning Indian designer Sushma Kalzunkar Sawant, followed by a workshop on manual design. These free workshops are meant to be an introduction to five level technical courses that will be offered at GSI beginning in June.

Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.” You may like Platinum Guild To Offer Facilitated Sales Training Centurion Announces Free Tucson Gem Educational Event for Feb. 2 GIA Announces 2020 Classes Promoted Headlines Digital Warrior: A Conversation with GemFind’s Alex Fetanat GemFind A Sales Meeting Platform for The 21st Century The Plumb Club With Average Retails of $250, This Is One Brand You Won’t Want to Miss!
