These JCK Tucson Designers Get Creative—Minimal Gems Required For a week of events typically dedicated to gemstones, it might seem odd to talk about Tucson and stoneless designs in the same breath. But that’s just what I’m about to do, considering a great many designers getting ready to show off their creations at JCK Tucson feature styles that require little to no additional adornment. Though the designs shown here today don’t celebrate rare gemstones or bright color, that absence goes unnoticed.

The artists represented are so interesting and so varied, it will be like a veritable gallery of emerging and established talent. Brandon Holschuh Brandon Holschuh creates small sculptures from jewelry (and actual large sculptures), with layer upon layer of metal colors and textures, and the subtle gleam of gemstones.
