Intro
(...) Enjoia’t is a celebration of creativity, innovation and excellence within the field of artistic jewellery making, and is a meeting point for professionals of the sector. (...)
The Enjoia’t is an activity that began 16 years ago with the desire to share the world of contemporary artistic jewellery making with a wide public. It is an initiative designed, firstly, to support and promote the younger generations of emerging jewellery-makers. Secondly, it is to provide recognition for those professionals, who, year after year, fight to achieve excellence in the field of independent jewellery making.

Framed within the recreational and festive atmosphere of the ceremony, this activity has always been, since its inception, a launching pad for many designers. It has provided them with recognition of their work, and has led to lines of communication with outstanding companies in the sector.

To put it briefly, Enjoia’t is a celebration of creativity, innovation and excellence within the field of artistic jewellery making, and is a meeting point for professionals of the sector. This event, which is celebrated annually, is set up to be the only initiative of its kind in the Spanish state, in which the objective is to spread the art of jewellery making and to stimulate good practices among its creators.
