That's what WJA does - it brings together women in the jewelry industry (which, like so many things, has been traditionally male dominated) and provides opportunities for networking, mentoring, business development and training.
The Austin chapter is relatively new - and I'm excited to be a part of it.
It was fun to visit with Sara Dominguez and Elizabeth Gibson of Eliza Page - where I have shopped for years - most recently for this sweet Hamsa ring that was one of my daughter's Hanukkah gifts.

I met some new folks, too...

Haley LeBeuf, whose architectural jewelry has found it's way into my heart and on to my ears - because as I've said so many times before - there are NEVER too many earrings.
Haley was wearing these included crystal drops from her new "Violet Crown" line at the WJA event - and I have since added a pair to my own collection.

In addition to all the pretties for sale - Jodi had an amazing cake - which was as delicious as it was beautiful.
So far, 2018 is off to a really good start - and I look forward to sharing more of my jewelry adventures with you!
Until next time.
