My Life: Dawn Hendricks

Dawn Hendricks
Peridot Fine Jewelry, Larchmont, NY

Growing up, Dawn Hendricks says she was always the weird kid who wanted to have her own store. She achieved her dream in 2002 but not before exploring both photography and visual merchandising as potential careers. Named one of America’s Coolest Stores in 2015, Peridot specializes in handmade products, especially American-made designs. Her curation process includes meeting personally with each designer. “I can’t support and sell jewelry unless there’s good energy behind it.”

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
