"This year, the 17th Erfurter Schmucksymposium took place August 5–19, 2019. It had the motto—and how could it be any different on the centennial of the most important design school of the 20th century?—"100 years of
uhaus." This is the only meeting of jewelry artists that, in addition to the theoretical part, focuses on working together for 14 days. Almost the entire elite of international jewelry design has already participated in this symposium. As on every occasion, 10 participants took part: Mandy Rasch, Katharina Kielmann, Ketli Tiitsar, Sophie Hanagarth, Anat Shiftan, Jamie Bennett, Melanie Isverding, Sarh Schuschkleb, Felix Lindner, and Karola Torkos."
