This week, we were fortunate enough to go Full Circle with the sweet Lisa Bridge, of Ben Bridge Jeweler. Lisa is a fifth generation member of the successful family business which was started by her great grandfather in 1912. Ben Bridge started with the simple premise that they could offer the finest in jewelry values with special attention to personal service.

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…

I hope everyone had a lovely holiday weekend and enjoying some downtime as we are approach the New Year. Last week I dished on two influencers in the jewelry design community who will be at JCK Tucson, February 3-7 at the serene JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort & Spa. When I took on the role as Design Ambassador for JCK’s Design Center, I didn’t go into the experience with eyes wide shut. I knew there would be some serious challenges in changing false perceptions and gaining excitement about the next evolution of this essential part to the show. What I wasn’t expecting…

Among the crunch time that the holiday season brings, I was lucky enough to speak with two influential designers that will be at JCK Tucson (February 3-7,2016). Sarah Graham is probably one of the nicest jewelers I’ve ever encountered and will be speaking at JCK Tucson alongside Todd Reed for a session called ‘Inside the Designers Studio‘. This can’t miss session will be moderated by JCK Magazine’s Victoria Gomelsky and offers retailers and designers alike insight into the vision and impressive careers of the industry’s design icons. Sarah definitely hasn’t let fame go to her head, and it’s easy to pick…
