CIBJO invites you to the 1st Mine to Design webinar,
looking at how a gemstone’s origin inspires the jewellery designer

CIBJO invites you to participate in a free webinar taking place on Thursday, May 7, 2020, starting at 11:00 AM U.S. EDT, which will consider the influence of where a gemstone is mined on the design of the jewellery in which it set.

The webinar is a collaboration between CIBJO and Greenland Ruby, and will feature the company’s CCO Hayley Henning interviewing jewellery designers Erica Courtney , Deirdre Featherstone , Stephen Webster , Victor Velyan and Ulrik Hartmann , about how traveling to different gem mining areas around the world has influenced their creativity, design choices and business strategies.

The webinar will investigate how each designer’s personal experience visiting mining areas inspired the process about how they go about their work, and how this in turn impacted their businesses. It will highlight the success of individuals who go out into the field to learn about and acquire the raw materials they use, and who have made ‘”origin” a major part of their story-telling and their art.
