PRLog - Aug. 27, 2012 - KINGSTON, N.Y. -- It is no surprise to any crafts fair attendee that jewelry takes the gold medal in sales by volume and by the number of exhibitors at any retail or wholesale venue. Clearly the public demand for this media is unmatched by any other category.

Said Scott Rubinstein, co-director of QUAIL HOLLOW EVENTS, “The jurying for our shows takes place in January of every year and it is always expected to produce a great number of applicants in jewelry; far in excess of the number of artists we could accommodate. It is the only category that we institute rigid quotas as to the number accepted. We must regretfully turn away many competent and talented jewelry artists. But to accept more would not be in the shows best interest or insuring the success of those accepted.”
Said co-director Neil, “I never can get over the insatiable appetite so many of our best patrons have for jewelry and it is of course appreciated. To some women, (and also a few men), there is never a time when a new pair of earrings is not a welcome and needed purchase. I am thankful and truly believe that this appetite may have morphed into our genetic makeup.”
The fair exhibits approximately 40 jewelers from across America. Their media include precious metals and gems, acrylics, paper, wood, glass, beaded, and more.
Several of the nation’s finest jewelers reside and work right here in the Hudson Valley and we are proud to showcase their creations. Please check our program or web site for a complete list of our many valued artists and their booth spaces.
