The Jewelry Design Professionals' Network was founded to promote greater communication between Jewelry Designers through out the industry for the purposes of:

We believe that greater communication and interaction between and among designers will strengthen us as individual designers, and as a professional group.
Our aim is to provide an open, accessible and supportive channel for designers to share ideas, questions and concerns that affect many of us as artists and as business people; and to celebrate and enjoy our energy and creativity with like-minded individuals.
