Larry Ostler
V&O Lapidary
Seattle, WA. USA

I’m a cab cutter, that is, I hand cut and polish a variety of
semiprecious stone into cabochons for the collector and the jeweler.
My interest in lapidary and geology spans nearly 60 years. I
convinced my wife, Bon Vernarelli, to take up silver-smithing so we
now enjoy our parallel fields together.

SIERAAD is the platform for contemporary jewellery designers, the
place to meet his/her public. There has been an increase of 55% in
purchases compared to 2008. The number of visitors increased by 8% -
6200 very interested visitors who said they had come to Amsterdam
especially for SIERAAD. For our participants it is important that
many journalists, galleries, boutique owners, stylists, etc. come to
the fair and they did! From at home and abroad. One in 5.6 visitors
actually made a purchase at the fair! This number shows an increase
every year! SIERAAD could be seen on national TV, heard on the radio
and of course be read about in magazines and papers.
