Designer and Retail Spotlight: ZFolio & Kathy Kamei

Comments
Design of the Times

Last week, I spotlighted two of the many talents that gathered at JCK Tucson last week, ZFolio and designer Kathy Kamei. ZFolio is part of JCK’s new Design Center Advisory Board and helped curate the Design Center relaunch worthy of its discerning, yet humble, discretion. The experience and passion which ZFolio brings to the world of retail jewelry is a valuable perspective to have in the JCK designer community. When I asked Natasha Lazorva, director of Operations at ZFolio why JCK Tucson is so important to her she responded, “It’s important to me to constantly be aware of new artists and collections. I’m…

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…

The countdown to JCK Tucson (February 3-7,2016) is officially in full swing and if you can’t tell yet, it’s all about designers and celebrating the community. In case you missed it, I put the spotlight on another dynamic jewelry designer who will be exhibiting at JCK Tucson for this first time, Melissa Spencer of Spencer Fine Jewelry. My love affair with Melissa Spencer began on Instagram. As we all know, the medium is extremely helpful in finding new talent, new interests, and new inspiration. I absolutely love her work. It’s regal, accessible, fun, thoughtful, and beautifully executed. It didn’t come as…

Last week I shed some light into the creative brains of two visionaries in jewelry design, Todd Reed and Delphine Richagneux, CEO of Manika Jewelry both will be joining us at JCK Tucson. Perhaps I still have Golden Globes on the brain but this series has been so rewarding, it almost feels like I’ve been writing the screenplay of what JCK Tucson will look like this year. The caliber of artists who are #JCKTucsonBound speak for themselves, there was certainly no exaggeration when the JCK team said a top focus of 2016 is design and will elevate the offerings for the design…
