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 | 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.”
