Membership in the Guild is open to self-representing studio jewelers from New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.
We are group of jewelers who believe passionately in the need for quality shows with a minimum of expense. Our goal is to sell beautiful, well constructed items that will be affordable to the public in venues specifically devoted to the jewelers art.
The Guild offers jewelers the opportunity to share knowledge and support, and to participate in retail and wholesale shows where the inventory is made by talented artists, fairly priced and beautifully presented. We ask that our members be professional in their outlook, be eager to share skill and experience, and have integrity in their work.
Applications and jury submissions are welcome. Please print and fill out the form below to be considered for admission to the Guild. The scanned form should be sent by email to Rhonda. Alternatively, email Rhonda and she will send you the form as a Word document.
