Don’t Look For HSN Rock God Jay King’s Turquoise Bowls After October

July 21, 2010

You may not see this King bowl anymore after the fall

HSN rock star Jay King’s current turquoise and lapis bowls are not long for this world.

King, who has HSN’s Today’s Special Wednesday, said on his first show at midnight that he will have some of the popular bowls coming in October.

“After that, I don’t know if we’ll be able to do it anymore,” King said.

With turquoise so scarce and expensive, it looks like doing the bowls in the current design just uses up too much of that “rough.”

King was asked about the bowls again at 1 p.m., from a woman who wanted to buy one for her husband’s birthday.

That time, King hedged a bit and said he was “trying” to bring the bowls back in October, again citing skyrocketing turquoise prices as the problem.

“The turquoise had gone through the roof,” he told that caller.

And even later King hedged again about even having the bowls in October, saying, “That’s not a guarantee.”

But take heart. King, who just came back from being on the road for five weeks, also mentioned that he has just designed four more bowls. So maybe we’ll see them coming up on HSN.

Wednesday is HSN’s 24-hour Silver Celebration, and King’s TS is a garnet waterfall necklace for $100.
