 Taking part in the conference “Digital meet Handmade” organized by FIT (Fashion institute of technology) in New York and Politecnico di Milan. A three days of discussion surrounding jewelry design and manufacturing. There has been a seismic shift in jewelry design and manufacturing in recent years. As digital design and model making have speeded up the process, they have proven themselves invaluable as tools of the trade. But every tool, hand-held or digital—leaves its mark. This symposium will provide an arena for debate on how digital technology and making by hand duel for influence in the aesthetics, the use, and the cultural contexts of jewelry as both a manufactured product and as an applied art form.  The discussion will not only be oriented to the outcome of different crafting procedures, but it is intended to propose reflection on the production and distribution processes for jewelry. The implications “digital vs handmade" in social context will be explored. The question of how the integration of digital technology effects sustainability will be examined—both in manufacturing, and in how if effects the perceived value of the jewelry—monetarily and as art. And finally, the symposium is intended to foster debate and research in the didactics of jewelry as an applied art, through of critical analysis and discovery.

The theme “HD-Treasure” was a playful look at contemporary digital culture, social media, space travel, and technological nostalgia. A survey into contemporary cultures insatiable need for higher definition mediums in an increasingly complex and layered digital environment. A question to a field of highly skilled craft creatives: How do we locate the precious and how has this definition changed with the new resources around us?
