OUR NOVEMBER CLUE noted uvarovite’s typically small crystals mean it often presents with a drusy moss-like look. Our winner, Karen Bandy of Karen Bandy Studio in Bend, OR, knows that look all too well – she’s used uvarovite in her earring designs many times. (Here is one of her creations combining uvarovite with chrysoprase).

It’s a lovely piece and it’s always nice to see our mystery stone of the month in action.

Well done, Karen, and all our Honorable Mentions, who also submitted the correct answer.

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
