Mark recently attended the American Jewelry Design Council’s (AJDC) annual retreat. AJDC holds two yearly meetings and one yearly retreat, where members gather to share projects and visit local galleries, discuss the artistic aspect of designing, and how to inspire upcoming designers. This year it was held in Asheville, North Carolina and hosted by Geoffrey Giles, who opened up his studio for everyone to explore. Members of AJDC also got to tour the Biltmore Estate, of the Vanderbilt Family. Check out Mark’s pictures of the retreat.
