2022 Themes: Joy & Human Connection

Whether you are on the side of making or receiving the beauty of jewelry, human connection and the emotional attachment of jewelry brings us joy in times of peril and in prosperity.

What is jewelry if not human connection? From the tangible to the emotional, connection is part of jewelry’s DNA. Missed connections in the jewelry stratosphere do not exist because jewelers connect every day – not just through cold connections and fusing but through the stories that touch hearts and bring us closer to our communities. Let’s not forget the relationships forged between the maker and the wearer.

Human connection can take many forms and the meanings are often subjective and personal, but the pursuit of joy, unity and community is common.

We remind you to consider “human connection” and “joy” as you develop your program and/or event description for sharing with the world.

Coming Soon

VENUES

The NYCJW22 programming team will contact participants who indicated they need support finding a venue for their in-person program and/or event. Together, you will work collaboratively to secure a venue. In addition to the support provided by NYC Jewelry Week, it is expected that you will continue to conduct your own search for a venue. While our team will make every effort to support your search, NYC Jewelry Week does not guarantee venues.  In the event that we are unable to secure a suitable venue for your program, you may elect to conduct your program virtually or withdraw your participation. The cut off date to withdraw or switch to a virtual presentation is October 7, 2022.

SCHEDULING

Once the draft Program Schedule is developed by the programming team, a survey will be circulated. On the survey, you will be able to request a preferred time to host your in-person program or event.
