The contemporary jewellery designers who participate in AUTOR 2019 were selected by an international jury of experts in the field of contemporary and art jewellery:
Caroline Broadhead - artist and professor of the Saint Martins College, London, UK.
Hans Stofer - artist and professor Germany.
Sofia Björkman - artist and founder of Platinum Gallery, Stockholm, Sweden.
Ruudt Peters - artist and professor, Holland.
Dan Pierșinaru - visual artist, director and founder of AUTOR, Bucharest, Romania.

In the selection process, the jury looked at a number of issues that differentiate these creations: the designer's ability to propose an original and at the same time very personal vision, to surprise, to question the contexts and ideas, all transposed into jewellery made with exceptional and innovative techniques.

Raluca Buzura, one of the most talented Romanian artists of contemporary jewelry and one of the most longevous presences in the history of the AUTOR fair, is FOCUS artist of the 18th-anniversary edition. With a central positioning in the new edition of the fair, in the foyer of the National Theater in Bucharest, on April 20-21, Raluca brings to the Romanian audience the collection "She", a porcelain metaphor dedicated to femininity in all its complicated, emotional, cute and fascinating sides.

We want the leave the audience with a beautiful feeling. Discovery and ennoblement. AUTOR is primarily a meeting place. It is a space and a scene where the creator and his audience meet and communicate. We want to have as many meetings and as many lasting relationships as possible for this edition. Contemporary jewelry goes on, and AUTOR fair is one of the necessary stops.
/ Dan Piersinaru, director and founder of the AUTOR platform.

AUTOR is an exclusive scene for contemporary jewelry, concepts, and encounters. It is the space where both functional and conceptual approaches to wearing jewelry can be seen and touched. In each edition, we are defining the sweet spot where design, art, and emotions meet. The selected artists explore different themes such as wearable versus statement pieces, cultural differences and meanings, authenticity and personal filter, accepted beauty and unusual aesthetics. As a platform, AUTOR communicates on different levels and through various media: the fair, the printed magazine, the awards, and a versatile digital arena.
