MJSA Receives Grant

Manufacturing Jewelers & Suppliers of America (MJSA) has received a $75,000 grant from The JCK 2002 Jewelry Industry Fund. The funds will be used to create educational resources for manufacturers in the Los Angeles jewelry district, where recent health and safety compliance issues have threatened the survival of one of the nation’s largest jewelry manufacturing centers. Resources will include instructional manuals, safety information seminars, and a “buyer’s guide” of code-approved equipment, and will ultimately serve as the basis for a national outreach program. For more information, call MJSA director of education Mary Walek, (800) 444-6572, ext. 3041.
