Afghan Hands is a nonprofit organization that teaches skills to help Afghan widows gain independence, literacy and livable wages. These women learn to create embroidered shawls and scarves while also attending classes. For most of these women, this is the only way they are educated.INSTORE Gabriel2From left: Claire Danes, Matin Maulawizada of Afghan Hands and Cynthia Nixon

Wilkerson Testimonials

To Generate Funds for a Jeweler’s Move and Remodel, Wilkerson More Than Delivered

Even successful jewelers need a little extra cash to fund expansion plans—especially when there’s inventory on hand that’s ripe for liquidation. For Beaumont, Texas-based jeweler Michael Price, co-owner of Mathews Jewelers, it was the perfect time to call Wilkerson. Price talked to other jewelers as well as vendors for advice during the selection process and decided to go with Wilkerson. And he wasn’t disappointed. When it comes to paying for the move and expansion, Price says the road ahead is clear. “When we close on the next two stores, there’s no worries about finances.”
