Announcing The Romero-Weber Jewelry Camp Scholarship Fund

All of us in the jewelry community were greatly saddened by the loss of Christie Romero in late 2009.  Rather than making a donation to the American Cancer Society, Barry Weber of Edith Weber Jewelry had the idea to establish a Christie Romero Scholarship Fund for Jewelry Camp.  Who could have imagined that one year later the jewelry industry would lose another beloved faculty member.  As most of you know we lost Barry Weber late 2010 to this horrible disease.  Edward and I would like to continue the scholarship that Barry established a short time ago but feel it is only fitting to rename the scholarship to the Romero-Weber Jewelry Camp Scholarship Fund. 
Applicants for the 2011 scholarship should composes a brief essay or email explaining why they should be selected to attend.
Please send applications to 
The cut-off date for scholarship application is April 30, 2011.  The recipient of the award will be announced in May, giving ample time to make arrangements.
This scholarship will cover the cost of Jewelry Camp Tuition only at this time.  All other costs, lodging, travel and food are the responsibility of the recipient.
