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.

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.”
