It was something out of the 1960s, but had the most amazing hot springs and restaurant. It was a magical place. Tell us more about the jewelry designs in your…

Last week I put the spotlight on  Susan Wheeler  and Michael Jensen Designs in my column, Design of the Times, a blog focused on JCK Event’s designers.  These two designers craft each piece with the utmost integrity and are showcasing their collections at JCK Tucson.
