This year the officials at the JCK show in Las Vegas have disclosed that attendance is up 8% over last year. There is optimism among the suppliers. The Jewelry Television jewelry and gemstone buyers are very busy running from one appointment to the other and this show is massive and the venues are spread out. They are getting tired but are running on the adrenaline that is clearly present here at the show.
What a discovery! We found this lively and lovely lady pictured above at the show. Her name is Iris Lane and WHAT a character! Iris has been a designer and avid antique collector her entire life.
Her work (pictured above) has a distinctive feel--rich and elegant. It definitely makes a bold statement and is not for the meek! I am anxious to work with Iris here at JTV Headquarters in Knoxville, Tennessee!
JTV Jewelry Buyer Haley had an appointment to work on our all important--and fast approaching--Fall Fashion Week! She has been studying the color palettes and silhouttes for fall 2010. She is seen here designing our exciting fall gemstone jewelry line.
Until next time,
