Stripes and Patterns Take These Styles to the Edge




Motor sports, racing stripes and the sleek lines of the art deco movement provide inspiration for the graphic mixed-media effect of ready-to-wear on the spring 2017 runways as well as in the design studios of emerging and established jewelry talents. Stones cut into geometric shapes and mixed metals and enameling result in styles that focus on striped or color-blocked patterns. Whether linear or squared off, these looks are current with an edgy modernity.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
