Platinum road show launches this month

The Platinum Technical Road Show will be in select cities from July through October. This year’s road show—in conjunction with Bench Jewelers “Show Me” Seminars—is an all-day seminar for bench jewelers that provide hands-on training in areas such as advanced platinum stone setting and fabrication.

The advanced stone setting segment will train bench jewelers to properly execute pavé settings and setting oval and princess cut stones. Bench tips and other tricks will also be demonstrated using household items such as CD’s and baking soda.
Jurgen Maerz, director of technical education for Platinum Guild International USA will once again head the road show.

The seminars are intended for bench jewelers of all skill levels to learn new and improved Platinum bench techniques.

The 2006 Platinum Technical Road Show, in conjunction with Bench Jewelers “Show Me” Seminars, will be touring the country making stops in the following cities:
Chicago – July 28
