Using her long and storied romance with gemstones as a jumping point, Cynthia Renée leads listeners into the mind of a visual and creative adventurer through stories and inspiring visuals to provide listeners a whole different way of thinking about creativity, personal evolution, jewels, expression and beauty.
While each talk is tailored to specific audiences and time allowances, favorite subjects are around artistic impulse; creation and expression; gemstone aesthetics, mining and collecting; jewelry wardrobing and self-expression.
Cynthia Renée has gone a mile under the earth into one of two of the world’s palladium mines, visited gem mines in the world’s remote areas, is a multi-time winner of the nation’s most esteemed jewelry design contests and is as comfortable in a remote gem mine as she is at a Park Avenue salon or rural Dairy Queen.
She has served four terms on the Board of Directors of the American Gem Trade Association, an organization promoting Mine-to-Market integrity, Professionalism and Ethics, chairing the Promotion and co-chairing the Spectrum Awards Committees. She is also an author, mother and inventor of a trademarked system for understanding color.
