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.

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.
