(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

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.
