Jewelry designer and manufacturer JewelPop, Inc. announced that jewelry and 3-D designer Aidan Smith has joined their design team.Smith brings with him to JewelPop a diploma from Kootenay School of the Arts in Jewelry and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree majoring in Jewelry Design and Metalsmithing from Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University. Interested in the jewelry industry from a young age, Smith arrived brimming with new design ideas and armed with the latest design tools and techniques.
Smith had this to say about JewelPop: “I was drawn to the position offered by JewelPop, Inc. initially because it was an excellent position in my field of choice. Also, being Canadian I was intrigued by their company’s story, they are a Canadian company (which) started with a simple idea and has grown exponentially in very little time. I was also impressed with their charitable participation and the fact that there is no child labor used which is often an issue with international manufacturing.
“Now that I have joined the team I am very happy. The company is run by amazing people, there is a real family atmosphere that makes me feel at home. I am looking forward to growing with the company and am looking forward to seeing my designs being worn by consumers.”
JewelPop President Robert Smith (no relation) commented: “This is a very exciting time at JewelPop, Inc. We are very pleased to have Mr. Smith join us. He brings fresh ideas and a youthful perspective that we know will produce amazing designs.
“We release new designs in our Kameleon line twice a year, and are constantly working on new projects, one of which is a new interchangeable line that will be released this year at the JCK show. This creates a huge demand for new designs. Smith has joined the team and fit in wonderfully, the knowledge he has brought to the table has already proven invaluable.”
