Stuller Announces 2020 Bench Jeweler Workshop

(PRESS RELEASE) LAFAYETTE, LA – Stuller’s annual event for bench jewelers, Bench Jeweler Workshop, is returning to its global headquarters in Lafayette, LA, March 27-28, 2020.

“This is the event for bench jewelers,” says Tammy Lail, vice president of tools and metals. “From in-depth seminars to skill demonstrations, there is something here for everyone regardless of your current level.”

This year’s event will host popular seminars and demonstrations such as Basic Diamond Grading, Social Media Uncovered, Pricing Repair, and Laser Welding. The fifth annual Battle of the Benches competition will also take place on the demonstration floor.

“Three exceptional bench jewelers – Stanislav Petrov, David Adamson, and Richard Wiegel will compete against returning 2019 champion Evgenii Fedko in a real-time design contest,” says Lail. “Over the course of two days, the contestants will design, prep, polish and assemble new creations right on our demonstration floor.”

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.
