Judith Ann Jewels proprietor Judi Bufkin invited a select group of customers to a special meet-and-greet with renowned Houston-based jewelry designer Emily Armenta. (See our October issue for an in-depth look at her métier.) Following a delicious private luncheon at The Grotto, the crowd moved to the store for a trunk show of her stunning creations. Inspired by Byzantine and gothic religious art, the chunky silver and gold pieces are ablaze with glowing opals, multicolored onyx, tourmalines and diamonds. Sparkling: Joni Cope, Shelly deZevallos, Lesley Davis, Samantha Kennedy, Cynthia Wark, Karen Owens, Cherri Carbonara, and Vivian Wise.
