(PRESS RELEASE) The Atlanta Jewelry Show Kids Jewelry Camp nurtures a community where children and teens discover, develop and express their imaginative vision for jewelry in an age-appropriate environment. They are devoted to building the foundation for future generations by inspiring enthusiasm, fostering creativity, and encouraging leadership to produce fully dimensional artisans, designers and businesspeople. These young hearts and minds will determine the future success of the jewelry industry, therefore the mission of AJS Kids Jewelry Camp is to cultivate capable and passionate leaders eager to pursue a career path in the jewelry business.

“Our priority is to welcome and inspire future generations of jewelers, and provide opportunities to build upon for a lifetime,” states Libby Brown, executive director, Atlanta Jewelry Show. “No camps are alike! The specialized curriculum changes for each session, which means each camper will learn something new whether it is their first or fourth time attending.” During the camp, children of industry professionals, ages 7-12 and 13 & up, will live life as a jewelry designer, metalsmith and entrepreneur for two days in a jewelry studio. The campers will work with the same equipment and materials as professional jewelers and learn a variety of techniques from skilled instructors, taking their own design from concept to exhibition.

“It is our responsibility as leaders in the jewelry industry to inspire future generations,” states Eric Lux, vice president, Rembrandt Charms. “As a second-generation business owner, I was inspired by my father’s dedication to creating a quality product that would stand the test of time. Hard-work and innovation are ideals that I will pass along to my own children. The AJS Kids Jewelry Camp is the perfect platform to pass along invaluable information to the jewelry professionals of the future.”

Thinking of Retirement? This Jeweler Went for the Company That Shares His Values

Richard Frank of Goldstein’s Jewelry in Mobile, Ala., had worked in his family’s store since he was 13-years old. As its owner, he was proud to be at the helm of Mobile’s oldest jewelry store, an AGS, IJO and RJO member business. But there comes a time in every jeweler’s life when a decision must be made regarding the future. And for Frank, that meant turning the store over to new owners. He chose Wilkerson to handle the sale, a decision, he says, made a long time ago. “Their reputation is such that all the things we value are what they value,” he says. And the results surpassed Frank’s own expectations. Would he recommend Wilkerson for other jewelers who are considering a going-out-of-business or retirement sale? “If you’re contemplating a sale to maximize the return on your business, there is no one else in the industry that I could even think of recommending.”
