Their creations are very open to interpretation.

The New York Times highlighted the three designs which won the top award at Schmuck, the contemporary jewelry fair that was recently held in Munich. “An ice-like blue brooch, another pin inspired by cold fusion and a pendant meant to look a lot like a mobile phone” were created by Jelizaveta Suska, 26, a Latvian who lives in Sweden; Stefano Marchetti, 45, of Italy; and Moniek Schrijer, 32, of New Zealand. “The winners all combine unusual materials to create something entirely new. … What’s interesting about all this jewelry is that it’s not only about craft — it’s open to interpretation,” Ursula Ilse-Neuman, one of the four jury members, told the NYT.

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
