Design of the Times: Pascal Lacroix

You’ll find a number of his gorgeous collections at JCK Tucson this year, but we couldn’t wait until then to chat with him about wrist wear, inspiration, and the design process.

Infinitely wearable.  This is jewelry for…

Get to know some of your JCK Design Center designers! By: Monica Stephenson, iDazzle Alex Monroe If I had to sum up the JCK Las Vegas show with one word, it would have to be “discovery.”  I am so grateful to have connected to Alex Monroe through this series, and if you have not uncovered Alex in his 30 years of making jewelry, I hope that you can see his work at JCK Las Vegas.  A magical convergence of entomology and exquisite metal work and gems, his work tells a story of biology, beginnings and cycles.  This aesthetic taps into the…
