INSTORE Design Awards 2018 – Cindy Edelstein Emerging Designer Award

TAP by Todd Pownell

Todd Pownell first debuted the Cleveland-based jewelry collection he created with his wife, Debra Rosen, to the industry-at-large at the JA Show in 2014. Jewelryphiles were buzzing about the asymmetrical power and richness of the line, and it was no surprise to anyone when Cindy Edelstein presented him with the Mort Abelson New Designer of the Year Award.

It seems appropriate, then, that four years later, TAP by Todd Pownell has earned INSTORE’s award that honors the former curator of JA’s New Designer Gallery.

“We both have educations and backgrounds in jewelry that were very different, but have been very complimentary in creating our aesthetic,” says Rosen. “Romanticism primarily inspires our designs. We combine themes of order, chaos, light, dark, dusk, night and the vastness of landscape. The poetic unexpected juxtapositions of gems in settings and texture are all signature of our pieces.”

What’s next for Cleveland’s dynamic design duo? “We are currently exploring a series of oscillating fine line drawings in gold with diamonds in unique settings,” says Rosen. “So, you can expect the unexpected from us at TAP by Todd Pownell!”

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
