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.

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
