It’s been one of those weeks. Normally, I would devote most of an entire day to covering the NY Now show’s nexus of talented jewelry designers and artisans, but as it happened, I had only an hour to spare. One hour.
Which required blitzing through aisles 1000-1300 like it was an episode of Supermarket Sweep, talking even faster than I normally do and honing in on just a handful of designers I hadn’t connected with in a while. (Except for Judi Powers, whom I saw at JA New York in March, but JCK’s Melissa Bernardo’s Instagram posts drew me in with pics of green tourmalines and delicately flickering gemstone stackers, and I couldn’t stay away.)
Here’s how I used my time, with photos and a few notes.
