The food, the wine, the windows…there was a lot to take in at the “Treasures of Umbria: Jewelry by Italian Artisans” event on Nov. 8 in conjunction with the Umbria Trade Agency and Confartigianato at JADED on Madison Avenue in Manhattan. Of course, the real reason I was there was to see the colored stone jewelry from 10 Umbrian artists to celebrate “I love Umbria” month. Here are five pieces in particular that caught my eye.
