There are lots of pictures, and it costs $280.

In an attempt to reveal his techniques so that others may learn from them, world-renowned jewelry designer Wallace Chan has published his first book, “Dream Light Water,” Forbes writes. The article says that Chan took two and a half years to perfect the gem-carving technique for which he’s best known: The Wallace Cut, “where he creates a reverse image in the back of a gem using cameo and intaglio carving techniques that result in a multiple-dimensional trompe l’oiel effect when seen from the front of the gem.” The book contains 260 color photographs and illustrations of 86 different pieces in “extreme close-ups,” and it retails for $280.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
