I'm Nominated for a WJA Award for Excellence!

Every year the Women's Jewelry Association (WJA) puts on one of the absolute greatest parties of the year - its the Awards for Excellence.  The evening is a beautiful celebration of the jewelry industry, and select women for their achievements.  The press release came out just before I left for the Couture Show, and I was so touched by all the wonderful notes of congratulations.  

As the WJA puts it:  “The awards are given to female professionals in the jewelry and/or watch industries who have demonstrated significant achievements throughout their careers, in categories that include: design; manufacturer, dealer, supplier; retail; sales and merchandising; marketing and communications; editorial media; special services; and watches. “

I am thrilled to be nominated along with a powerhouse group of women, several of whom I personally know.  Congratulations to all the nominees, especially those special ladies who make everyone's sparkle dreams come true, my fellow designers: Wendy Brandes, owner/president, Wendy Brandes Jewelry; Jennifer Dawes, principal/designer, Jennifer Dawes Design; Claudia Kretchmer, president, Steven Kretchmer; Ilaria Lonzoni, design director, Hearts on Fire. 

I will forever be grateful to the WJA, and all the members for giving so generously to me   a foundation and network when I changed careers and dove head first into the alluring world of fine jewelry.

Looking forward to celebrating with all of you, and cheering you on!

Sparklingly Yours,
