Jason Adams, jewelry designer and estate specialist, will take us on a trip through jewelry history to help us understand the design, craft, materials, identification and value of jewelry from the 17th through the 20th centuries. He will also share examples of jewelry from his personal collection, including items that have not been shown before, to enrich our experience.
Adams has been passionately studying jewelry history since his teen years. He received a degree in art, majoring in metals and photography, from the University of Akron and since then, has created exceptional pieces of jewelry and given talks on jewelry and working with metals at the University of Akron.
Adams has had an independent estate sales business for the past 15 years and sells through various antique malls and online. One of his pieces was featured on Antiques Roadshow.
