For Throwback Thursday, I have a few more pictures from last month’s Women’s Jewelry Association Award for Excellence gala.
First, the sentimental one. I love the way this picture captures the camaraderie of the WJA members. All hands on deck!
This photo says it all – @womensjewelryassociation has connected us with SO MANY brilliant designers, gem dealers, metalsmiths, and mentors. We appreciate all that they do to support women and to provide a place for learning and camaraderie. Here's a little shout out to these stunning GEMS (both the people and what's on their fingers).

Now for the silly ones. How could I forget to post my duckface photo with gorgeous jewelry blogger Barbara Palumbo? We do one whenever we get together.
Admittedly, that’s not my best duckface. It’s more like a non-surgical version of a trout pout. I need to brush up on my skills.
Speaking of Barbara, belated thanks to her for hosting her traditional post-jewelry-gala “Whiskey Breakfast.” My right-hand woman Eryn and I had a great time, though you wouldn’t know that from this photo that seems to show us giving the hairy eyeball to jewelry designer Lika Behar.
I swear we weren’t looking at Lika! I don’t know what was happening at that moment. I might have been complaining to Eryn that I’d eaten too many breakfast burritos. I mean, seriously, WTF.
We were so mortified by this photo that Eryn decided to photoshop it to make us look more friendly.
Who would have thought this photo could become even more disturbing? Nice job, Eryn!
