Had to Make a Jewelry Showpiece
by Duane W Aldrich.
I’ve been told before that I should have a showpiece on display in my show stall to show.
I’m told this ends up being a conversation starter and attracts attention.
Well, I’ve put it off for a while but recently, my wife & I were scheduled to be at a gem and jewelry conference banquet, so I found another reason to make that statement piece.
Here it is, it’s 23.25ctw of Chrome Diopside and 5.25ctw of Champagne Strontium Titanate in Sterling.
It was worth all the work just to see her wearing it and getting showered with attention.
Now my question, does anybody else put a showpiece out at shows or maybe do you wear an over the top item at shows?
Wondering if it helps or hinders.
