TIME FOR JEWELRY

Detroit-based watch brand Shinola , with its classic timepieces and accessories, has gone a long way toward giving USA-made products a fashionable profile, not to mention bringing jobs to the Midwestern city. It doesn’t hurt that its creative team includes supermodel Carolyn Murphy and powerhouse designers Richard Lambertson and John Truex. The dream team has just gotten bigger thanks to a new collaboration with jewelry designer Pamela Love. She’ll create the label’s first fine jewelry line, which will debut in November of this year.

If sci-fi flicks involving disposable eyewear are the only things that spring to mind when you think 3-D, a conversation with Blue Mountings might be in order. The company will do 3-D wax printing of CAD renderings or will cast a CAD rendering after creating a 3-D wax. Blue Mountings clients submit their materials at the company’s website and see a price estimate and on-screen preview of their designs before making a commitment.

When There’s No Succession Plan, Call Wilkerson

Bob Wesley, owner of Robert C. Wesley Jewelers in Scottsdale, Ariz., was a third-generation jeweler. When it was time to enjoy life on the other side of the counter, he weighed his options. His lease was nearing renewal time and with no succession plan, he decided it was time to call Wilkerson. There was plenty of inventory to sell and at first, says Wesley, he thought he might try to manage a sale himself. But he’s glad he didn’t. “There’s no way I could have done this as well as Wilkerson,” he says. Wilkerson took responsibility for the entire event, with every detail — from advertising to accounting — done, dusted and managed by the Wilkerson team. “It’s the complete package,” he says of the Wilkerson method of helping jewelers to easily go on to the next phase of their lives. “There’s no way any retailer can duplicate what they’ve done.”
