Artisan Movement – A Preview of JCK’s Design Center


Every year, I anticipate the treasures no doubt waiting within the rows of the show’s Design Center neighborhood, and anxiously await the unveiling of the latest group of JCK Rising Stars. These are your creators: Masters of metal, geniuses with gemstones, artists of epic proportions. If it’s perspective you’re looking for, there’s more than enough to go around in this corner of the show. Inspiration comes from a range of sources here, and you’ll find something to suit every taste (every budget, too).
