Thank you to everyone who voted for Pamela in the online primaries!! As you know, your votes helped her to become a Finalist in the prestigious Town & Country Couture Design Awards, often referred to as the "Oscars of fine jewelry design." The Gold Category was arguably the most difficult category to compete in, with over 30 entrants, most of them very well-known, established design companies. The final voting was done by fine jewelry retailers and fellow jewelry designers at the Couture Show in Las Vegas, and the top three in each category were invited to an exclusive awards ceremony/cocktail party at the Wynn's club Blush. At the party, the names of the top three in the Gold Category were announced: "H. Stern... Calgaro... Pamela Froman Fine Jewelry... and the winner is... by popular demand... Pamela Froman!!" The crowd went wild as Pamela was led to the stage to accept her award and take photographs with the editor of Town & Country Magazine and a model wearing her piece! It was all so exciting!!!

P.S. - I had my camera with me and plan to post some snapshots I took at the event, so check back in a few days.

Couture Show

Hi Everyone,

First of all I want to thank all of you who voted for me in the "Town & Country Couture Design Awards". It worked I am a finalist, YEAH! So now they display my necklace in a vitrine at the show and the buyers vote at the show for the winner. I am very excited.

It has been a crazy couple of weeks getting ready for the Couture Show in Vegas. Jilienne and I don't know if we are coming or going. I did not get a chance to use some of my amazing stones I got in Tucson but, I have some cool new pieces debuting at the show. Some one of a kind pieces that are beautiful.

Also, I just finished designing the poster for the back of the booth at Couture, it is 78 wide and 45 high.  It is above, I think it will look great at the show, plus it has my best creation in it, a photo of my son Hudson Elijah in the locket.

We leave Tuesday and the show is 6 days, so it is long. I will write when I get back. Have a great weekend!
Cheers & Crushes, Pamela

Pamela Froman in Modern Jeweler's May Issue

Pamela's jewelry made quite a few appearances in this month's edition of Modern Jeweler Magazine! Her one-of-a-kind Wrapped Rutile Mommy Earrings were featured in the Jewelry Trends section entitled "The Perfect Pear", and the Key Items section presented a selection of Pamela's stackable Crushed Bangles and Rings. I've retyped some of the articles below:

Jewelry Trends: The Perfect Pear
One-of-a-Kind 18k Yellow Crushed Gold with Malaya Garnet, Diamonds, and Rutilated Quartz; Dangles are removable so Studs can be worn alone.

"A new silhouette is gracefully dropping from fashionable ears. The three-dimensional pear drop earring is a fresh take on the briolette drop. These sleek shapes in metal are modern in feel and slender in silhouette. Descendants of Art Deco, they use texture and pattern to add interest. Best of all, they are universally flattering." --Cheryl Kremkow

Key Item: Stackable Rings
18k Pink & 18k Green Crushed Gold & Scattered Diamond "Get A Crush" Stack Rings with an 18k White Crushed Gold & Diamond "Pave Scroll Sparkle" Stack Ring

"Is there anything more versatile than the stack ring? These brilliant bands can be wedding rings, eternity bands, or the finger version of the charm bracelet, ready to be mixed or matched to suit a woman's style. Each stackable ring encircles all these possibilities. ... Two can accompany a wedding ring, three's charming, and with four definitely more is more."
--Cheryl Kremkow

Key Item: Stackable BanglesAssorted "Crushed" Bangles in 18k Pink, White, Yellow, and Green Gold: some have (3) single Diamonds; some have (3) 18k White Diamond Pave Scrolls; some include two or three colors of Gold in one Bangle

"Like potato chips, no one can stop at just one bangle. The bigger the stack, the better. And this season, it's all about the mix. Fashion-forward customers, following red carpet trends, are mixing thick and thin bangles in a variety of styles, metals, and materials. As one retailer recently told us, "our customers are stacking bangles up the arm." ... It's all about layering. Here are some of the great new bangles available this season, ready to be mixed into your own custom collection." --Cheryl Kremkow

Diane Lane wearing Pamela Froman earrings

A pair of Pamela's "Harlequin Stud" earrings were borrowed a few months ago for a Neutrogena ad starring their new spokeswoman Diane Lane. I haven't seen the actual ad yet, but I found this behind-the-scenes video on YouTube. The earrings are small, but if you look closely, you can spot them! (In case you missed it, I took a screenshot of the paused video and circled them for you.)

These "Harlequin Stud" earrings are 22k Gold and 18k White Gold with Rose-Cut Diamonds.
