DIGITAL PROGRAM BOOK
Specialized Conference Theme Introduction: “A Polarized Convocation of Jewellers Reconsidered”
In his book Jewelry Concepts and Technology, Oppi Untracht presents ‘A polarized convocation of jewelers,’ a diagram that traces the alliances and interests of different practices that make up the jewellery community. This talk engaged with, and extended, Untracht’s diagram, mapping the values that sustain and distinguish different jewellery roles and identities in the contemporary jewellery scene.
“Make Like the Masters”
Make like Cartier, design like Tiffany, twist like Yurman, and get a rare look into the genius of unknown Michelangelos that made jewellery — a tour never given in their workshops.
