Hood River, OR (PRWEB) July 20, 2015
Cari Streeter of Jewelry by Cari, best known for personalized charm jewelry, is one of 10 designers chosen to debut in the New Designer Gallery at the JA New York Jewelry Trade Show, taking place at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City, July 26th-28th. The New Designer Gallery has historically been a launch pad to successful careers in the fine jewelry market. It is described in the show look book as, “the destination to see up-and-coming stars of the jewelry industry”.
Cari will debut a New Gemstone Collection that is created with handpicked sapphire, tourmaline, aquamarine and druzy quartz gemstones. She sculpts the gemstone settings with a clay-like medium, in the same unique way that her Charms Collection is made. Her designs are then cast in sterling silver or 14kt gold.
“It’s a huge honor to be included in the New Designer Gallery,” enthused Cari. “Our latest collection reflects our desire to add color and sparkle to our line. My first designs were created with gemstones and I’ve always been drawn to their unique beauty. I’m getting back to my roots and feel extremely proud of this collection.”
The popular Personalized Charms Collection, sold at jewelry boutiques nationwide for over 10 years, will also be available at the show. Each handcrafted piece can be elaborately customized with skilled hand stamping, flush-set diamonds and raised gold lettering. It allows the customer a way to document their personal story in a unique piece of jewelry. The entire collection is interchangeable, allowing the freedom to add numerous charms to a variety of chains and build over time.
Adding to the anticipation, one of the 10 designers will be awarded the Mort Abelson New Designer of the Year Award, which will be presented during a special ceremony on Monday, July 27th at 2:00pm in the New Designer Gallery area on the show floor. Jewelry journalist, Lorraine DePasque, points out that this is JA’s first all female New Designer Gallery in an InStore Magazine article tweets, “Jewelry's New "It" Girl? Could be one of these 10!”
