Designer Karen Walker says hands reflect ‘a life well-lived.’

Older women — and their hands — are the stars of New Zealand jewelry designer Karen Walker’s latest campaign, the Observer reports. Phyllis Sues, 93, and Roberta Haze, 78, both former dancers modeled Walker’s rings in photographs (shown) taken by Ari Seth Cohen. “Hands can be every bit as expressive as faces, can speak of a life well-lived,” Walker told the website. Pieces in the new collection include the brand’s signature arrow ring and a mood ring that, instead of changing color, reads “love” or “hate.”

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
