I went to the Manufacturing Jewelers & Suppliers of America show on Tuesday. It was my first time; I’m trying to network more and make use of the tremendous resources that are out there for jewelers.
I went with another jeweler who works completely differently than I do. We were attracted to different booths – I stopped at bead sellers and clasp manufacturers, she talked to CAD specialists and an enameler. It was fascinating, if I’d been on my own I would have missed a lot.
I’ll probably just pet them and love them for a while first though.
