Alumni Chapter

Manhattan Chapter: Design presented by Jewelry Designer Sean Gilson

What is design? Is it a pretty object to look at or is it something much broader? How do commerce and technology play a part in what we see and use?
Design, by nature, must be functional, but with the integration of aesthetics, it can transform an object into something greater, more elusive. Jewelry design is a fascinating enigma with its simplicity and complexity, both from a technological and societal standpoint.
Award-winner Sean Gilson will speak about design and technology and what today’s jewelry designers need to innovate and thrive. With examples of design, Gilson will give an insightful understanding of the importance of design in jewelry.
All are welcome to attend this event, whether you're a GIA alumni, student, industry associate, hobbyist or guest.
