Thomas Mann
Gallery I/O, New Orleans, LA

Thomas Mann, who describes his style as “techno-romantic,” has been making jewelry since high school. He quickly noticed a connection between jewelry, girls and money when he brought the silver bangles he made to school in a sock and sold out by lunch. His retail gallery, Gallery I/O, celebrated 25 years in 2013. In 2007, he developed the brand Thomas Mann studioFLUX to offer jewelrymaking workshops, do-it-yourself kits and how-to videos from master jewelry artists. He also creates larger scale sculptures, including the piece he is pictured with, Trajectory Heart – Cloud.

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
