Robyn Hawk, a writer and social media specialist focused on the jewelry industry, has died at age 63.

She passed away on July 16 from a stroke, according to a post made on her Facebook page by relatives.

“Robyn fell hard in love with the gemstone and jewelry world – and with all of you,” wrote her mother, Maureen, and younger sister, Dawn.

Hawk was one of the first major social media “influencers” in the jewelry industry, as she used Twitter to comment with her trademark dry wit on trends, fashion, industry issues and the quirks of being a jeweler. We at INSTORE sought her opinions and comments for various stories, as did other jewelry trade publications.

“She was always excited to learn more and then to share and promote this world on her many blogs. Robyn was truly wowed by all the creative people she met, those in mining, gemstone cutters, jewelers, collectors and more. She was a social media guru and a wonderful writer, and her enthusiasm was infectious.”

Working under the moniker “A Fly on the Wall,” the Fullerton, CA, resident was a social content curator, serial blogger and website copy writer.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
