Ray Griffiths Ray Griffiths will share the inspirations and processes behind his work, highlighting his signature grid-like “Crownwork®” visible in all his jewelry. Trademarked by Ray, no other jeweler in the world uses this technique. Renowned for his meticulous metal work, profound technical skills, and use of exquisite gemstones, Ray Griffiths is a master jeweler and lover of all things that sparkle.
John Bigelow Taylor and Dianne Dubler John Bigelow Taylor and Dianne Dubler will take us on a stunning visual journey into the life of the brilliant master jeweler, Frédéric Zaavy. As close friends of Frédéric, whose life was cut short in 2011 at 46 years old, John and Dianne have had exclusive access to create striking images of his work, his creative inspiration, his atelier and domestic settings. Stardust: The Work and Life of Jeweler Extraordinaire Frédéric Zaavy highlights Frédéric's genius in painting the universe with precious stones and the development of his remarkable structures for holding those stones almost invisibly. John and Dianne have produced photography for over 300 books, including Elizabeth Taylor: My Love Affair with Jewelry, and Madeleine Albright’s Read My Pins: Stories from a Diplomat's Jewel Box.
