Evocateur: Gold Leaf Fascination
Designer Barbara Ross-Innamorati ofEvocateur was first inspired by an exhibition of paintings by Expressionist artist Gustav Klimt, which captured her imagination. Since then she says she has been passionate about gold leaf- the way it can transform objects into something almost magical. Each piece is made using a centuries-old gilding technique and burnished by hand. The flecks of 22k gold leaf or silver leaf are added to give the collections a vintage look. The new Humphrey's Safari collection, named after her recent trip to Africa, gives a portion of the proceeds to a school in rural Zimbabwe. Booth #2963

Heather Moore Jewelry Launches Bridal Collection
Heather Moore Jewelry is bringing her new bridal collection to the JA New York Show. Heather was recently awarded first place in the bridal category at the 2013 Couture Design Awards with an engagement ring from her new collection. Inspired by the 13 ladies at her office and studio who are getting married this year, the collection features engagement rings and his and her wedding bands, many of which can be personalized. There are classic and diamond bands available in yellow, white, rose and green gold, as well as palladium. Heather says a baby collection could be next! Booth #3049

Mattioli Unveils the Tibet Collection
Designer Licia Mattioligained inspiration for her new collection from an ancient custom in Tibet. Before a wedding, the mother of the bride fashions a ring for her daughter out of any wiry material that can be found in the village. It can be wire, string or even horse hair. In a sweet ceremony, the mother begins wrapping the material around the bride's finger to create a ring. Every wrap of the material signifies a year of good fortune in the marriage. When Licia learned of this custom in her travels, she declared “I must make this in gold!” The Tibet Collection of rings, earrings, bracelets and pendants are hand-made in 18k gold and each piece represents a wish of well being and prosperity.
