(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.”

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
