(Press Release) Stuller Inc.’s annual Bench Jeweler Workshop featuring the second annual Battle of the Benches competition will return to their global headquarters in Lafayette, LA, March 24-26.

“This is the premier event for bench jewelers,” says Tammy Kidder, vice president of merchandising. “This year we will have over a dozen in-depth classes, new product demonstrations, and of course our second annual Battle of the Benches competition.”

This year, three exceptional bench jewelers will be selected to compete against defending champion David Adamson of David Adamson Designer Jewelry. Travel expenses (up to $500), complimentary event registration, and lodging during the event will be provided for all contestants.

“It’s a real-time design contest that will be held during our Workshop. The contestants will compete in three different challenges – design, parts and pieces, and prep and polish,” says Kidder. “Last year workshop attendees filled the showroom floor to watch the live competition. It was a huge hit and a lot of fun.”

The two and a half-day workshop will also play host to a number of hands-on demonstrations and educational seminars including, but not limited to:

  • Working with Digitally Grown Assets
  • Diamond Market
  • Laser Training
  • Increase Profits with Repair
  • Working with Platinum
  • Polishing and Plating

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
