Max’s Shines in New York

Local jewelry boutique recognized at prestigious awards ceremony.

Congratulations to Max’s jewelry boutique and to owner Ellen Hertz on being a finalist in the Women’s Jewelry Association (WJA) 2015 Awards for Excellence. Pamela Froman and Suzanne Kalan—two designers whose work is carried at Max’s—were both finalists in the design category. The annual gala—this year held on July 27 in New York—recognizes talent and business success by women working in the jewelry and watch industry. Hertz is an active member of the Twin Cities WJA chapter. “We were thrilled to learn that Max’s was a finalist in the awards nominations,” she says. “It’s a great honor to be recognized along with industry peers for whom I have the highest respect.”
