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 Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
