ONE OF THE REASONS noted jeweler Craig Husar came onto INSTORE’s podcast, The Barb Wire, was to offer moral support to jewelers considering risky moves. He was thinking of risky moves like the one he made while building his monumental new store, Craig Husar Fine Diamonds & Jewelry Designs in Brookfield, WI, which opened this January.

But when sharing his story, Husar chuckles at the notion of inspiring other jewelers, admitting that building his store was a very, very difficult process and one he almost gave up on himself. See how Husar describes the process in this short excerpt from the latest episode of “The Barb Wire”.
