Ellicott City, Md.--In its 12th year, The Association for the Study of Jewelry and Related Arts’ annual conference will be held June 10 in Boston.

This topic this year is “Coming Full Circle, The Re-Use of Styles in Jewelry.”

Several speakers will be on hand to discuss the recycling and re-emergence of trends.

Emily Banis Stoehrer, the Rita J. Kaplan and Susan B. Kaplan Curator of Jewelry, Museum of Fine Arts Boston, will discuss her forthcoming exhibition, “Past is Present: Revival Jewelry,” which opens in February.

Jody Sataloff, the current vice president and immediate past president of the Maine Jewish Museum and the daughter of the late jewelry expert Dr. Joseph Sataloff, will present “Remembering My Father.”

Usha Balakrishnan, Ph.D., an independent scholar and author of Jewelry of the Nizams will speak on “Revival of Traditional Indian Design.”

Ben Macklowe, president of the Macklowe Gallery, will cover “Revivals in Art Nouveau Jewelry.”

Anne Bromer, of Bromer Booksellers and herself an author, will host a presentation on “The Jeweled Volume at the Bottom of the Sea and Other Tales.”

Yvonne Markowitz, co-director of the ASJRA and a Rita J. Kaplan and Susan B. Kaplan Curator of Jewelry, Emerita at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, will present “Egyptian Revival in Jewelry.”

Fellow ASJRA co-director Elyse Zorn Karlin will cover “Celtic Revival Jewelry in the 19th and 20th Centuries,” and Gloria Lieberman, vice president of Skinner Inc., will present “Surviving Revivals!”

This year’s conference is dedicated to the memory of Dr. Joseph Sataloff, who, along with his wife, lent the majority of pieces to an exhibition eight years ago called “Imperishable Beauty: Art Nouveau Jewelry.” That year’s ASJRA conference was held in conjunction with the exhibition in Boston.

To commemorate Sataloff’s memory, jewelry designer Neil Lane will speak via video at the conference on his relationship with Sataloff and the advice he received from him on collecting antiques.

The cost of “Coming Full Circle” is $350 and includes breakfast, lunch and an end-of-day reception. Special low-cost housing for the conference is available at the Massachusetts College of Art.
