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.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
