    Hilary Halstead Scott Coming to JEM October 26th!

    What’s Next? Exploring a Career Path for Early Career Studio Jewelers

    Wednesday, October 26th 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM

    410 Bush Street, San Francisco, Ca

    Halstead

    It’s hard to think past graduation day. Leaving the security of a university metals studio can be a scary step. Where will you make? How will you sell work? Entrepreneurship is intimidating. 

    Hilary Halstead Scott, the President of Halstead, an international jewelry supply wholesaler will be visiting the School of Jewelry and Metal Arts this October. In her talk, Hilary will outline one path to independence as a studio artist, by incorporating lessons from her lifetime in the jewelry industry, an advanced business education, and over a decade or experience coordinating the Halstead Grant competition for emerging artists. 

    “Coaching new jewelers is one of my favorite things. I cannot think of a better way to give back to our community. Young artists are bubbling over with questions, ideas and worries. The enthusiasm of newly minted makers is contagious and it never fails to reignite my love for the jewelry world.”
