The Boston chapter can boast that the WJA began here in Beantown in 1976. But there hasn’t been a chapter here since that first year until 2014, when a group of dedicated women created a chapter of it's own, for Boston, the greater metro area, and beyond. We have been amazed with the breadth of our growth, and that our group has attracted a substantial number of committed, enthusiastic, designers, makers, retailers, and all kinds of contractors, dealers, and support businesses, who want to network with other professionals in the industry. We also welcome and encourage students, emerging artists, and artisan businesswomen, who seek mentoring, friendships, and collaborations with those who have been inside the industry.

After all, we are the Boston Chapter of the Women's Jewelry Association. We support, encourage, and delight in the advancement and success of women in the jewelry industry, no matter your position.


Our Calendar for the upcoming 2017-2018 season is underway, with 'Jewelry Night Out' coming up quickly. If you're looking for other events, and would like to reach out to us, to see what event is next, please email us at: We look forward to welcoming you, soon!
