In Search of Tangibility, Designer Opens Her First Retail Gallery

Belle Brooke Barer, designer, bench jeweler and goldsmith, opened her first retail gallery on Santa Fe’s Canyon Road in 2016 after running her own business, Belle Brooke Designs, for 10 years. The space is blessed with natural light, a beamed ceiling, a kiva-style fireplace and an adjacent studio. Each piece of jewelry is hand-crafted, using traditional tools and techniques with recycled metals and ethically sourced gemstones. “I strongly believe that my generation needs to leave something more tangible behind than just a digital footprint,” she says.

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
