Jewelry Designer Panel: How Responsibility Became a Passion

It can be challenging for small jewelry producers to achieve transparent supply chains. While meaningful progress is finally being made in the jewelry industry, much of that work has been targeted at larger corporations with large purchasing departments, and on supply chain initiatives that serve larger volumes. 


The jewelry designer panel at Chicago Responsible Jewelry Conference has been a big hit each year. It is an excellent opportunity for designers who have achieved blazed a responsibility trail to share their knowledge, experience, and practices with other small producers.

This panel will be moderated by Brandee Dallow (Responsible Jewellery Council), and will include Dana Bronfman (Dana Bronfman Jewelry), Deborah Spencer (Trios Studio),  Mariele Ivy (Young in the Mountains), and Meri Geraldine (Gardens of the Sun).
