The Association for the Study of Jewelry & Related Arts Annual Fall Conference
will take place Saturday, October 12, 2013 with an optional study day to be
held preceding the conference on Friday, October 11.

The conference begins at 9 a.m. (with coffee and check-in beginning at 8:15 a.m.) and ending about 4:30 p.m. We do not publish the times assigned to individual speakers as they are subject to last minute changes. The location of the conference is in mid-town Manhattan at a beautiful turn-of-the 20th century private club which prohibits us from publishing their name and address on the website.
