Jennifer Fisher turned it up a notch for her birthday bash

If you haven’t already heard of party restaurant Maison Close thanks to the TikTok crew, no doubt you have now. Jewelry designer Jennifer Fisher made sure everyone was in flying form in the Soho hotspot last night as she celebrated her birthday with tabletop dancing, endless champagne and caviar, fries, burlesque performances, and everything in between. Family, friends, and industry supporters turned up en masse to toast to the fun-loving ‘Queen of Hoops’—and much to their delight, at one point she was even tossing out her signature earrings into the crowd. Joining Fisher on the night were Athena Calderone, Savannah Guthrie, Wes Gordon, Caroline Daur, Ezra J. Williams, Tina Leung, Jenna Perry, Leah McSweeney, Brett Heyman, Jenna Lyons, Ubah Hassan, Nicole Chavez, Meredith Melling, Katie Jane Hughes, Dr. Macrene Alexiades, Radhika Jones, Chrissy Rutherford, Cass Bird, Dani Stahl, Ronny Kobo, Stacey Bendet, Jenny Mollen, Jason Biggs, Eric Rutherford, Priya Shukla, and many, many more. That’s how it’s done!

Calling all New Yorkers. The world’s most interesting and innovative jewelry of the moment is currently on display—and up for grabs!—at the Museum of Arts and Design’s annual MAD About Jewelry show and sale. The beloved event, which spotlights 50 homegrown and international makers, is open (and free) to the public until April 29. Now in its 23rd year, and a vital endeavor to support the Museum’s exhibits and programing, the event kicked off with an opening benefit which honored the MAD About Jewelry 2023 Awards recipients. Over an intimate dinner hosted at the Museum’s Robert restaurant, industry guests and Museum executives celebrated Alexis Bittar, founder of the eponymous luxury jewelry and accessories brand; Linda Fargo, senior vice president of fashion and store presentation at Bergdorf Goodman; and Sam Broekema, editor-in-chief of Only Natural Diamonds, the digital editorial platform powered by the Natural Diamond Council. On the night, two emerging jewelry artists, Miki Asai and Steven KP, were also invited to have their work included in the Museum’s permanent collection. Guests in attendance included Museum leadership such as Michele Cohen, Chair of the Board of Trustees; Bryna Pomp, Director, MAD About Jewelry; Tim Rodgers, Nanette L. Laitman Director; and Elissa Auther, Deputy Director of Curatorial Affairs and the William and Mildred Lasdon Chief Curator. They were joined on the evening by Ana Khouri, Beau McCall and Peter “Souleo” Wright, Fern Mallis, Judy Geib, Levi Higgs, Lilah Ramzi, Lutfi Janania, Lynn Yaeger, Nikos Koulis, Nina Tiari, Rickie de Sole, and Zani Gugelmann.
