JCK Asks…Designer Judi Powers

The Hudson, N.Y.–based designer works wonders in tourmaline, green gold, and beyond Did you know that Judi Powers is the Tourmaline Queen? It may not be an official title, but that’s what we call her. She’s also “crazy about” dendritic agates. And she thinks the most “misunderstood and underappreciated” gemstone out there is zircon. Another one of Powers’ superpowers: green gold. “When I was studying metalsmithing at School of Visual Arts, my instructor encouraged me to work in gold,” she recalls. “When I told her I didn’t care for the warm yellow color, she suggested I try green gold because it has cooler tones. She was 100 percent right, and I’ve been using it ever since.” Green Gold Queen has a nice ring to it, too!  Judi Powers Corazón stacking ring in 18k green gold with diamonds[/capti
