Well, if the warm weather isn’t proof enough, the other sure sign that spring is here is that Max’s trunk show season begins this Friday. We’ve got 10 great events lined up for the year with some of our favorite jewelry designers, and we kick things off this weekend by welcoming Jeanne Johngren to Max’s. Jeanne’s work is heavily influenced by her travels in Europe and the life that she saw through a cinematographer’s lens when she was one of the first music video producers in the industry (ok, now THAT is pretty cool!). She draws her inspiration for her jewelry from Renaissance architecture, medieval tapestry, stained glass windows and Byzantine mosaics. I was first attracted to Jeanne’s work because of her color combinations – purple with green in an amethyst and peridot necklace and red with orange in a garnet and citrine combination. And how about this orange and pink sapphire beauty? The trunk show is Friday, April 30 from 10-7 and again on Saturday, May 1, from 10-6. Want to see more now? Check out Jeanne’s page on our website here or her website — I hope to see you this weekend.
Ok, well maybe that’s a bit of an overstatement, as we haven’t changed who we are or what we’re about. What we have changed, however, is our website and blog. Hopefully, you’ll like it as much or even more than before. I thought it was time to refresh things a bit — a bit of “spring cleaning”! I’d love some feedback on what you think about the changes — positive or not. I hope that you’ll notice all of the new artist pages we’ve added to the site to better represent more of the items we carry. Of course, this isn’t everything, but we will continue to add and update. Happy browsing!
