Connecting though jewelry is so much fun!!

I recently returned from the largest jewelry show in the country, JCK Las Vegas. Of course I love the show for the endless displays of every style of jewelry and every color of gem imaginable. It is both overwhelming and incredibly inspiring!  But I have to say, what I most look forward to each year is connecting with all of the friends Bill and I have made through our love of jewelry.

We had a great time brainstorming and live streaming with our lovely QVC Buyer Erin and the beautiful QVC Host and good friend Nancy Hornbeck.

Speaking of beautiful show hosts, I was so delighted that Judy Crowell dropped by!

We became friends years ago when Judy was a host at QVC. I swear, this women does not age! She shared a picture from 2003, when she and her husband Paul joined Bill and me for dinner just before they were married.


She and Paul are loving life in St. Petersburgh, Florida. I would be too if I could cruise around the neighborhood in her custom golf cart! It’s solar powered and street legal.


There is a lasting connection I will cherish forever, our friendship with John and Kathleen Avila. If not for them, Bill and I would never have met. They introduced us over a business dinner 23 years ago, and the rest is history! We were delighted that they stopped by our booth at JCK while shopping for their fabulous airport gift stores.

I hope your summer plans includes connection with those you love!
