Their creations are very open to interpretation.

The New York Times highlighted the three designs which won the top award at Schmuck, the contemporary jewelry fair that was recently held in Munich. “An ice-like blue brooch, another pin inspired by cold fusion and a pendant meant to look a lot like a mobile phone” were created by Jelizaveta Suska, 26, a Latvian who lives in Sweden; Stefano Marchetti, 45, of Italy; and Moniek Schrijer, 32, of New Zealand. “The winners all combine unusual materials to create something entirely new. … What’s interesting about all this jewelry is that it’s not only about craft — it’s open to interpretation,” Ursula Ilse-Neuman, one of the four jury members, told the NYT.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
