It’s officially spring, which means that JCK Las Vegas is next week! Okay, just kidding, but it will be here before you know it! Besides getting to see the jewelry friends that all congregate in Las Vegas for the magical #jewelryweeklasvegas, there are other things to look forward to. Big changes are afoot at JCK, and I’m so excited to see what the shiny new Design Center looks like! Every year, I look forward to walking the Design Center with a sense of discovery, of treasure-hunting the best and brightest jewelry designers. This year the Rising Stars, a collection of…

JCK Tucson open it’s doors tomorrow and it’s been so inspiring interviewing all my heroes that will be attending and exhibiting! Although this will be my last Tucson focused designer interview, I will keep the design conversation going in this series with our designers for the JCK Las Vegas Design Center! When it was announced last October that I was the Design Ambassador of JCK’s Design Center, I was met with a lot of “Who is this gal?” and “Who does she think she is?” The irony is that my only goal has been, and will continue to be, to build community in an…

After being snowed in for the weekend thanks to Winter Storm Jonas, the thought of escaping to the serene JW Marriott Starr Pass alongside so many talented and unique designers brings a smile to my face. JCK Tucson is truly the jewelry industry’s winter oasis and it’s only 13 days away! Last week, I uncovered the journey and aspirations of two exhibitors who are #JCKTucsonBound, Geoffrey Scott and Ayesha Studio. Both established designers are debuting a new line at JCK Tucson and spoke similar words of wisdom to emerging designers: develop, make mistakes, fail forward, and understand you can’t be…
