Initiated by Hans Schullin and directed by Fritz Maierhofer - both of them driven by the same passion for artistic jewellery - the Design Workshop Schmuck took place in Graz between 1991 and 1998. Based on the idea of creating an additional alternative to the existing training in Austria, internationally renowned guest professors, such as David Watkins, Giampaolo Babetto and Gijs Bakker, were invited to develop projects with the jewellery artists and goldsmiths in attendance.

The catalogue includes all details about the collection, interviews and artists' CVs, as well as a text on contemporary jewellery from the 1990s.
