A Busy Summer Season of Competitions, Trade Shows and new Designs
Did the summer fly by for you the way it did for me? I can't believe we are in the middle of September already and yet as I look back. There were visits with some customers, new designs and even 2 trade shows. Some of my jewelry was featured in - The Jewelers Collective Magazine, Fall 2023 and the AC Magazine. To my great joy - some of my jewelry won awards. 2 second place awards from the InStore Design competition and one pair of earrings won a CASE Award.
There was a fun adventure New Mexico to visit jewelry friends. We got to see amazing views + many petroglyphs. We visited Santa Fe and tasted delicious New Mexico wines. Some of the not-so-fun things were eye surgeries, (just cataract surgery - so it was not so bad) and injuring my shoulder while doing push ups. Talk about embarrassing.
The Stardust Earrings that I am showing you here are the earrings that took a first place CASE award (from Jewelers of America). And they are finalists in the Accessories Council Design Excellence Awards. Stay tuned for how that turns out.
