One of my favorite trips I take during the year is by far the annual gem show in Tucson, Arizona. It feels like the city is transformed into the biggest treasure hunt in the world. Everyone in the industry comes together to find the most exciting natural resources this planet has to offer.
You can see the jewelry trends happening a year before the pieces are even created. For me seeing all the raw unaltered stones sparks my creativity in very special ways. It’s at this show every year that I get some of my best ideas.
As Spring 2017 is here I thought I would tell you a little about the stones. Each one was picked for a special reason and it’s unique look. This collection wouldn’t have been possible without the following:
Blue Turquoise Howlite
When I knew my inspiration for this collection, I knew I had to find the most exquisite White Howlite to represent the water elements of the Asian Fusion. I think I found it.
Red Sponge Coral
