Among the many lectures and classes at Jewelry Camp is Donna Donna Bilak’s “Three Centuries of Style: The Culture of Jewelry from Baroque to Art Deco.”
ATLANTA — WorthPoint Corporation, the world’s largest resource for researching, valuing and buying/selling art, antiques and vintage collectibles, has announced its partnership with the annual Antique Jewelry & Art Conference, known by those in the business as “Jewelry Camp.” The event—an educational forum promoting knowledge in antique and estate jewelry and is open to jewelry industry professionals, collectors and the public—is hosted by Directors Edward and Sandy Lewand, and this will mark its 35th year.
Jewelry Camp is scheduled for July 27-29, 2012, at the Renaissance Westchester Hotel in White Plains, New York.
“We are extremely excited to partner with such a great event this year,” said Will Seippel, founder and CEO of WorthPoint. “Our organizations are a terrific match as we are both enabling the antique, art and collectible industry through promoting education and providing quality information to collectors, dealers as well as the public. I am excited to be speaking about how the online environment has not only impacted this dynamic industry but also made it better for us all.”
Jewelry Camp is comprised of three days of lectures, breakout groups and networking events. Participants have opportunities to meet and learn from top experts in buying, selling, appraising, and collecting. This year’s featured speakers will include—in addition to Seippel—Donna Bilak, a 19th- and early 20th-century jewelry historian; Jan Krulik-Belin, education director for the Phoenix Museum of Art; and Roy Rover of Roy Rover Antiques.
“With more estate jewelry coming out of the vault and going to dealers and the retail jeweler, there is no better time to learn more about the antique and estate jewelry market,” said Jewelry Camp Director Edward Lewand. “And there is no better place to do it than at Jewelry Camp.”
“Through Jewelry Camp, we are creating a community to aid in the dissemination of knowledge. In this fast-paced world, it’s important to rely on each other for education, support and networking, and we must take the time to help and learn from each other,” noted Director Sandy Lewand.
Jewelry Camp participants can choose among three conference packages—two that include hotel accommodations and one that offers a conference day rate. To register, call Sandy Lewand at 631.471.1922 or 631.377.9766, or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. For more details about this event, visit the Jewelry Camp website or its blog page.
