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.

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.

"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
"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."
"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

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.
