12 New-to-Couture Designers Not to Miss
By Ashley Davis
The best part about visiting the Couture show are the surprises.
Every retailer and buyer has their tried-and-true roster of designers they count on to produce beautiful jewelry season after season, and the Couture caliber of artist consistently lives up to expectations.
But it’s the unexpected—the new direction from a favorite brand, or an entirely new design voice—that keeps the jewelry trade show such an important industry resource.
We suggest carving out a little time this week to let the following dozen new-to-Couture jewelry designers surprise you with their originality and talent.
Booth: 137 with the Contemporary Jewelry Design Group
Designer: Dana Bronfman
Home Base: New York City
Worth a Visit Because… Bronfman is known for her signature cut-out designs and matte metalwork, and now the designer is focusing on incorporating more colored gemstones into her work, like the dreamy rutilated quartz pictured above.
