Santa Fe Symposium[R] Registration Opens; Act Now to Be There As
Experts Share Cutting-Edge Jewelry Research & Innovation
Registration is open, and there is no time to waste! Every year for
the past 27 years, the Santa Fe Symposium[R] on jewelry technology
becomes a magnet for jewelry professionals from around the world
looking to build on their success. Throughout the 3 1/2 days of this
renowned conference, casters, manufacturers and entrepreneurs enjoy
presentations on state-of-the-art techniques, new research, and the
latest innovations in the jewelry industry. Each day, and well into
the evening, opportunities abound to meet with colleagues, discuss
ideas, and build professional networks. Register now to attend the
Symposium on May 1922, 2013, in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
The jewelry industry has seen a flood of new technologies in recent
years, from thermoplastics to e-manufacturing to 3D computer-aided
jewelry design. Santa Fe Symposium attracts professionals from the
most successful companies in the industry, professionals who are
eager to combine tried-and-true techniques with innovative
technology that expands the limits of jewelry design and
manufacture. This integration of art and science inspires innovative
design and production methodology unimagined a few short years ago.
"The Symposium is all about the science of making jewelry and, for
me, it is a lot more than that," says Gary Dawson, professional
designer/goldsmith and six-time presenter at the Symposium, "It is
the opportunity to meet people who are every bit as passionate about
making jewelry as I am and to share and absorb that passion during
every waking moment".
This year's Symposium will feature presentations on a wide variety
of topics from jewelry trends and manufacturing strategies to new
materials such as elastic gold-based metallic glass. Says Eddie
Bell, the driving force behind the Symposium, "There is one reason I
attend Santa Fe Symposium year after year without fail: I learn more
there than I do through the rest of the year."

held May 1922, 2013, in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Scholarships are
