JCK Events Announces 2013 Design Center Rising Stars

JCK Events has revealed the names of its newest Rising Stars.

The 2013 Rising Stars are Bibi van der Velden, Cornelia Goldsmith, Jason Dow Jewelry, Naomi Blumenthal Studio, and Patrick Mohs Jewelry.

Each will exhibit in the Design Center at JCK Las Vegas, held at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino May 31–June 3.

The JCK Rising Star program identifies emerging artists whose jewelry design and manufacturing techniques are deserving of recognition in the current marketplace. Previous Rising Stars have included Chris Ploof, Fern Freeman, and Heather Moore.

“The Rising Stars are so important to the JCK portfolio because they infuse originality and innovation into the mix of products featured both in the Design Center and, of course, the larger show floor,” said Lars Parker-Myers, manager of strategic accounts for JCK Events, in a statement. “It’s great for retailers to get a glimpse at future design stars and to purchase something truly new and undiscovered for their customers.”
