OK - UPDATE! We are a go for #JewelryBizChat -at this point we are looking at Tuesdays at 6pm (West Coast should have time to get home from work - East Coast will be able to get the babies tucked in and grab a glass of wine). See the next post for more info!
Finally emerging from the Jewelry Show aftermath...if you follow my blogs you know that I cover all 40+ shows in Tucson every Spring and just about the time I start to do Vendor/Designer Spotlights on the Tucson Gem Show blog we start the pre-show previews for Jewelry Week in Las Vegas here on the Daily Jewel. We are finally at the Designer Spotlights here and that will continue...with over 2500 vendors at JCK alone (I also cover Couture, the Las Vegas Antique Jewelry Show and LUXURY) and there are SO many really FUN, new looks, designers and trends that I will be writing well into 2014! ...oh and look for some new Interview activity on my Jewelry & Gem Artisans Blog which has been dormant for months!!!
...you won't miss a minute of the fun if you are following all my blogs!
OK - that got a little to advertise -y...YUCK! back to the Topic at hand. A while back several people in the Industry (Dan Gordon, Marc Knobloch, etc.) were trying to put together a Twitter Chat to keep Industry folks and emerging artists in the know...
So - why am I thinking about this again? Because of a recent tweet from the enthusiastic Barbara Palumbo of Adornmentality!
This is SUCH an exciting time to be writing in the Jewelry Industry - the blog format is so widely accepted now and the Industry has become so much more supportive and, with only a few exceptions, sharing!
These tweets got me thinking...maybe it's time!
Thanks for the inspiration - anyone in?
What we need to get started:
► I have set the time and date - but it can be changed...
► Registered the hashtag
► Set up a Twitter Hub so that folks that can't make the chat can follow along!
► Need a couple folks to commit to Moderating
► Scheduling - interviews
I am sure there will be a million more things to do - we can handle them as they come our way!
SO - ANYONE ELSE IN?
