Three Additional Lectures & Seminars
What, When and Where of Jewelry Investigation
Through hands-on analysis, the Ladies of Gilt help you develop the vocabulary & techniques to answer the questions: What is it? When was it made? And where was it made?
The goal of this seminar is to enhance your skills for on-the-fly identification.
From our collection at Gilt we have chosen the most unusual, beautiful and exemplary pieces we could find. In small groups you will be able to compare and contrast these common and not so common items. With hands on examination you will find the answers to the What? When? and Where? of antique jewelry.
Have something that you can’t identify? Bring it in and we can all work together to figure out the what, when and where of your mystery piece. The purpose of this seminar is not only to teach but to learn from you as well. So, bring your knowledge, an open mind and a loupe.
Paula Bixel, Jessie Hibbs, Carley Brin Johnson & Lori Williams
