Women's Jewelry Association's 2017 Awards for Excellence Gala

I've been invited to exhibit a selection of my gem portraits and demonstrate my charting techniques at the Women's Jewelry Association's annual gala in New York City on July 24th. The event will be held at Pier 60, Chelsea Piers in Manhattan. In addition, I'm donating "Copper Queen", a piece inspired by Angel's Envy Distillery (Louisville, KY).  Click here to see a YouTube video of the photo book that describes the inspiration and the process of creating it from start to finish.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xQLZmQurxuE&feature=em-share_video_user.
