Congratulations to orchid member T.Lee. She was featured in April’s
Modern Jeweler magazine with an article entitled “Dream Weaver”. As
well, she won a “Rising Star” award this year.
The Rising Star award, for those who don’t know, is open to jewelers
who have never done a major jewelry trade show. Winners get a booth
in the Las Vegas JCK jewelry show. I hear the competition is tough.
I’d love to hear how she does and what it is like to experience one
of these shows, once the pressure of getting ready, attending and
recuperating from the show is over.
I’ve done work for jewelers/designers who have won this award and
the best advice I can give is “hang on for the ride!”
