Stuller, Inc. announces 2017 Annual Bench Jeweler Workshop

Battle of the benches competition returns

Lafayette, LA (November 2016) – Stuller’s annual Bench Jeweler Workshop featuring the 2nd annual Battle of the Benches competition will return to their global headquarters in Lafayette, Louisiana on March 24 - March 26, 2017.

“This is the premier event for bench jewelers,” says Tammy Kidder, vice president of merchandising. “This year we will have over a dozen in-depth classes, new product demonstrations, and of course our 2nd annual Battle of the Benches competition.”

This year, three exceptional bench jewelers will be selected to compete against defending champion David Adamson of David Adamson Designer Jewelry. Travel expenses (up to $500), complimentary event registration, and lodging during the event will be provided for all contestants.

“It’s a real-time design contest that will be held during our Workshop. The contestants will compete in three different challenges - design, parts and pieces, and prep and polish,” says Kidder. “Last year workshop attendees filled the showroom floor to watch the live competition. It was a huge hit and a lot of fun.”

The two and a half-day workshop will also play host to a number of hands-on demonstrations and educational seminars including, but not limited to:

  • Working with Digitally Grown Assets

  • Diamond Market

  • Laser Training

  • Increase Profits with Repair

  • Working with Platinum
