Anyone Up For Another Go At A #JewelryBizChat?

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!!! 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!

#FIFA - Nothing goes together quite like Footballers and Fine Watches....

#FIFA - Nothing goes together quite like Football and Fine Watches....

Roberta Naas' great watch blog A Timely Perspective talks about the Footballers that have signed on with Ritmo Mundo.

"Ritmo Mundo has signed on a massive roster with six international football brand ambassadors. Among the soccer players joining the Ritmo Mundo team are Brazilian David Luiz, Oscar, Dante, Paulihnio, Bernard, and Ramires among others. Each ambassador is sporting a 50mm Quantum timepiece with Swiss chronograph movements until the new watches are finished."
Ritmo Mundo Quantum -- the watch of choice for more than half a dozen top international footballers.

The recent Centurion Newsletter cites Bulova and Manchester United, Hautlence and Eric Cantona, Breitling and Beckham, Christiano Ronaldo and Tag Heuer with FIFA connections and Audemars Piguet, who has had four-time Golden Ball winner Leo Messi as its brand ambassador for four years. The Argentina-born legend wears a namesake limited edition Royal Oak Leo Messi chronograph.
