The mission of The Barb Wire is providing listeners with real conversations with key personalities in the jewelry industry. Aiming to avoid the arid nature of many instruction-oriented business podcasts and webinars, The Barb Wire instead offers engaging personal discussions with influential players shaping the future of jewelry retail.

In this short clip from the debut episode of “The Barb Wire,” John Carter of Jack Lewis Jewelers Barbara Palumbo answers a thought-provoking question: “If you could have dinner with anyone in the industry, alive or dead, who would it be?”

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”.

IN THIS SPECIAL HOLIDAY wrap-up episode of Over-the-Counter, Kyle tells the story of a woman whose father brought her a merry Christmas surprise by paying off an item that she hadn’t quite paid off on layaway. He also tells of a small watch repair service, provided for free, that provided a meaningful lesson for a young boy and an unexpected reward for a generous jeweler, as well as the most memorable holiday sale that took place in Kyle’s own store — an $80 gold rose to an extremely special couple.

Says Kyle: “No matter what stage of the business you’re in, we all have the power to take in these simple, subtle, quiet moments that change people’s lives. We are privy to people’s most important and cherished moments and memories, which is what makes this the greatest business to be in.”

In the highlight above, sample the first 90 seconds of Kyle’s latest podcast, wrapping up some of the most memorable sales of the holiday season. Or check out the entire podcast below.
