Pamela and I went to a casual WJA "Chat 'n' Chill" event last Thursday at Nic's Martini Lounge in Beverly Hills. We had a lot of fun catching up with jewelry industry friends, and making new ones. (I didn't have my camera with me so, sorry, no pics.) While I was chatting with LA Chapter President Lisa Schoening, I mentioned all the awards Pamela has won recently, and she asked me to send her the info to put in the Member News section of the new WJA LA website. The site looks fantastic, and the post about Pamela is already up! Click this link to check it out: http://www.wja-losangeles.memberlodge.com/Default.aspx?pageId=264220

By the way, WJA stands for Women's Jewelry Association, and it is an excellent organization. If you are in the jewelry industry and are not yet a member, look for a chapter near you and join!

Pamela Froman wins another Industry Award!

We are so excited that Pamela was honored with 2nd place in the Professional Category of The MJSA Vision Awards!! The MJSA Vision Awards is an annual Design Competition that "recognizes the talent and innovation of designers whose work will have a profound influence on the future of jewelry design." Each year, professional jewelry designers and jewelry design students (competing in the Student Category) enter what they feel is their best work, to be judged by leading manufacturers, jewelry designers, and other industry experts on the basis of creativity, presentation quality, effective use of materials, wearability, and the design's perceived manufacturing and marketing potential.

Pamela's entry that caught the judges' attention, was her one-of-a-kind "Sentimental Crush" Locket. This unique 18k "Crushed" Yellow Gold piece features a Deep Pink Tourmaline cabochon on the front, and 18k White Gold inlay highlights Pamela Froman's signature scrolly "PF" on the back. The Locket opens to reveal two small frames holding pictures of Pamela's son Hudson, whom she calls her Most Precious Creation.

This is the first in a series of one-of-a-kind Lockets that Pamela has designed. Keep an eye out for the next unique keepsake from Pamela Froman Fine Jewelry!

I was just flipping through my March issue of InStyle Magazine, and spotted Pamela's sexy "Serpentine Sparkle" around the neck of InStyle's West Coast Bureau Chief, Glynis Costin! Glynis paired this eye-catching necklace with a stack of 18k Yellow & White Gold Pamela Froman "Crushed Bangles" to complete her glamorous Golden Globes ensemble.
