Passions: Horsing Around

began my equestrian adventure in the Girl Scouts but didn’t realize my passion until adulthood. To celebrate my 40th birthday, two friends and I decided to do an inn-to-inn ride. That was 16 years ago and I haven’t stopped riding since.

I find the focus needed for riding is both different and yet the same as the focus needed for jewelry. Each helps maintain a balance for me. Both engage my mind and heart — it is humbling to be part of my customers’ milestones and equally humbling to be allowed to partner with an independent, intelligent, thinking animal. The trust is unconditional in both directions and horses are incredibly forgiving. Plus riding is a lot cheaper and more effective than therapy!

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
