Our book launch party at Belenky Gallery in Soho was amazing!
People were out in the street because we filled the gallery with so many friends -- designers, editors, gem dealers and other movers and shakers.
It was a blast!
Everyone got to see more than 40 pieces from various projects from the American Jewelry Design Council's Museum Collection (that's what I've dubbed the 12 years worth of thematic projects the designers of the AJDC have created).
AJDC designer members in attendance were: Jane Bohan, Whitney Boin, Michael Bondanza, Chris Correia, Henry Dunay, Sarah Graham, Susan Helmich, Jose Hess, John Iversen, Scott Keating, Christo Kiffer, Alan Revere, George Sawyer, William Schraft, Tina Segal and Diana Vincent.
