The 1st International Silver Jewelry Symposium brought seventeen artists from East and West together in the then Czechoslovak town of Jablonec nad Nisou— including Anton Cepka, Bruno Martinazzi, Elisabeth Kodré-Defner and Helfried Kodré, Jaroslav Kodejš, Josef Symon, and Hermann Jünger, who today are regarded as the founders of studio jewelry.
This publication celebrates the fifty-year anniversary of the symposium as a milestone in the history of studio jewelry and the beginning of an unprecedented international network. Alongside illuminating articles it contains the personal travel diary of Othmar Zschaler as well as a reprint of the limited edition 1968 exhibition catalogue.
