The Women's Jewelry Association -- the greatest way to connect with other powerful, amusing, useful and fun women (and men) in the industry -- held it's annual party in Las Vegas during the JCK Show in June. It was a great networking bash and a chance to celebrate the winners of the annual WJA DIVA Design Competition.
This year's competition had a Platinum Diva theme with five categories -- bridal ring trio suite below $5k retail and over $5k as well as bridal fashions under and over the same retail pricepoint and a natural color diamond bridal fashion category, too.
The winning designs were gorgeous and the contest attracted more than 150 entries.
Check out the Women's Jewelry Association website at www.womensjewelry.org to learn more about all the great events the WJA hosts around the country in 12 chapters. Of course, I'm biased -- I've been on the national Executive Board for many years -- but that's because it's a great way to grow your career in this industry. WJA owns the word networking in the jewelry industry -- our events bring together the power, energy and fun that fuels this business.
