Because we won't be going to Munich this year, we've arranged two special Schmuck-related AJF Live programs on March 10 and 11.

Wednesday, March 10: AJF Live with Helen Britton, Curator of Schmuck 2021

Helen Britton is one of our field’s most highly regarded jewelry artists, and was chosen as the curator of Schmuck 2021. She will walk us through her thought process behind her selection of 63 participants from more than 700 submissions for this exhibition—one of the most anticipated shows of every year.

We’ll meet via Zoom—register in advance for this meeting:

Thursday, March 11: AJF Live Announces the Winner of the Susan Beech Mid-Career Grant!

Since we can't be at the Internationale Handwerksmesse Main Stage to reveal the Susan Beech Mid-Career Grant winner, the next best thing is to make the announcement on AJF Live. Jurors Susan Beech, Emily Stoehrer, and Daniel Kruger will announce the winner and the two finalists. Please join us in celebrating them!

We’ll meet via Zoom—register in advance for this meeting:

Art Jewelry Forum is expanding its efforts to connect more directly with the jewelry community. We’re not moving away from print, but are expanding more into video. One of the ways we’re doing that is by hosting live chats online. We’re planning artist studio visits, live chats with gallerists about shows they’re hosting, interviews with curators and authors, artists interviewing other artists, and programming tied to various jewelry weeks from around the globe. We’ll record them and post them on our website.
