Aaron Faber co-owner Patricia Faber says the blue moon idea occurred to her some time ago. She was inspired by last year’s coverage of noteworthy lunar events like the Blood Moon and the Super Moon. And last fall, as she planned and strategized her upcoming trip to the Tucson gem shows, “my thoughts were completely around gemstones. And the two came together with the idiom of once in a blue moon, focusing on blue gemstones, and, of course, moonstones.

“Curating a show like this is just great fun—putting together jewelers whose work we’ve admired for a long time but haven’t had time to explore, new designers who are starting out, and established makers whose work we love to show and sell.”
