In just a couple of days, I am headed to Las Vegas for the JCK Jewelry Show and the Couture Jewelry Show. There is no way to fully express the sensory overload of a major jewelry show to someone who hasn’t attended. The diamonds, gems, and artistry on display is simply staggering. At some point your eyes have to re-adjust, as though they need a different visual spectrum to take it all in.
At the Couture Jewelry Show, I will be meeting many designers that I have featured previously, or will soon be writing about on idazzle.com. I’m particularly excited about meeting designer Erica Courtney, creator of the Drop Dead Gorgeous jewelry collections. I have followed Erica’s designs for some time, and can’t wait to meet her team and see what new designs they are unveiling.
I have an EXCLUSIVE sneak peek at one of her brand new designs to be unveiled at Couture, and I’m so excited to share it with all of you!
“Here’s a little tease of what you’re going to see at Couture 2012: Empress rings, gum drop and jelly belly earrings with a few sparkle pendents. Imperial jadeite, Scapolite, spinel and emerald green tourmaline, just to name a few! It’s going to be a colour explosion! Sunglasses may be required!” – Erica Courtney
I will be taking photos, copious notes, live tweeting, and eventually posting all of my finds from this mining expedition. I will share the true gems of the shows with you all!
