What do you think – can we officially call it spring yet? Even though Mother Nature surprised us this morning with a bit of snow (ok, it is March in Minnesota — I guess we shouldn’t really be THAT surprised!), I’m willing to take that bet and say yes, which means that it’s time for a little spring cleaning. This is the time of year when you may be used to seeing me write about going through your jewelry drawer to find those items which, while they have great stones in them, you never pull them out to wear. Rather than just close the drawer back up and forget about them for a while longer, how about bringing them to create something new with them – something that you actually will love to wear. Montreal-based jewelry designer Janis Kerman is making her annual visit to Max’s this weekend for a trunk show and custom design event. It’s a perfect time to work with someone who is a master with using stones and other materials from your existing jewelry to create something that speaks to your current style and mood. If you’re in the market for a custom engagement ring, Janis would love to design that with you too. In addition to custom design work, Janis has a line of highly contemporary, artful jewelry that I really love to wear and I hope that you will too.
In addition to Janis’ jewelry, we will have an expanded collection of the Bande des Quatres line. Bande des Quatres is a collaboration between Janis and her daughter Erin Wahed, and is heavily influenced by the Bauhaus masters, world renowned architects and abstract photographers.
The show is open to everyone but, if you’d like to meet with Janis to talk about custom design, please give us a call to make an appointment. It’s time that the “old” jewelry drawer stopped collecting dust!
